Reporting Requirements:

Reporting requirements for all Project Assistance and Individual Arts Awards programs have been revised. Effective June 30, 2016, applicants with overdue final reports will be ineligible to apply to BC Arts Council Project Assistance and Individual Arts Awards programs. Project Assistance or Individual Arts Awards submissions from applicants with overdue final reports will be disqualified before adjudication.
Final reports must be submitted within 30 days of project completion. End dates for BCAC funded projects currently in progress must be kept up to date to ensure eligibility for future grant competitions. Changes to project end dates should be requested prior to the original project end date.


Enhanced Capacity:

Beginning in the fall of 2016, organizations receiving Operating Assistance will be able to apply for new Enhanced Capacity support, concurrent with their extended cycle intake application. This funding is intended to help organizations build capacity and respond to strategic priorities, challenges and opportunities and will offer enhanced support for operations for the duration of the funding cycle. This approach allows flexibility in response to organizations’ fluctuations in cycles of activity or capacity needs, while still providing stable, base operating support.
