The provincial government is providing $2.1 million to help arts and culture organizations, which have been significantly impacted by COVID-19, meet their immediate needs.
The COVID-19 Emergency Support Program for Arts and Culture Organizations is a one-time, application-based program to help organizations who either receive Communities, Culture, and Heritage operating funding or who regularly receive project funding from the department. Criteria for funding will be based on need, and year-over-year financials and projections.
Financial assistance will be considered for plans that keep operations going, adapt spaces, and/or generate activity under the current public health guidelines.
The application deadline is December 7.
