Operating Assistance - Arts Periodicals

Originally introduced as the Streamlined Operating Assistance Program in 2015 for the majority of Council's program disciplines, the revised Operating Assistance Program is being launched in 2016 for Arts Periodicals. Arts Periodicals will now apply for support for two projected years of activities instead of one.

The new Operating Assistance Program offers funding through Extended Cycle and Annual Status grants.

  • Extended Cycle (formerly Streamlined Status): provides established, stable organizations with a fixed funding level over an extended funding cycle. Eligible, approved organizations will receive an operating grant amount over a period of two years based on an initial request amount and subject to annual reporting and budgetary approvals. Organizations on Extended Cycle Status must submit the Extended Cyle Report by the program deadline annually in order to receive a grant in each subsequent year of the funding cycle.
  • Annual Status: provides funding for annual operations to organizations that are newly entering the operating program; experiencing significant tarnsition; or requiring closer monitoring as identified by the Advisory Committee, Council or staff in consideration of Prograsm Guidelines and Council policy. Organizations on Annual Status must submit a full application by the program deadline each year.

For the March 15, 2016 deadline, the Operating Asisstance Program - Arts Periodicals will be entering Year One of a two-year funding cycle. New applicants to the program will only be accepted in Year One of the funding cycle.

Please refer to the guidelines or speak to your program officer for more information about your organization’s funding status and cycle.
