CRD Project Funding is intended for three types of arts-mandated, not-for-profit organizations:

  • established arts organizations that work on a project-to-project basis
  • new and emerging arts organizations
  • arts organizations undertaking special, one-time initiatives or unique or developmental projects

Applicant organizations must be non-profit societies, registered in BC, have been active in the CRD for at least six months, and have programming in the arts as their primary mandate and purpose. Project Grants are not available to arts organizations who receive Annual Operating Assistance from the CRD.
