We listened to feedback from the arts and culture sector and are today announcing clarifications to the eligibility criteria for the Expanded Arts & Culture Resilience Supplement (EACRS).
These clarifications will ensure that the supplement—which is designed to support organizations and collectives to manage the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic—reaches all those for whom it was originally intended.
The clarifications include:
- Adjusting the eligibility timeframe to include actual revenue loss this year up to December 31, 2020;
- Clarifying the definition of loss to include a reduction in capacity or activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic through to March 31, 2021.
The deadline for EACRS is January 29, 2021.
Organizations and collectives should also consider applying to the Pivot program, which has a deadline of January 4, 2021
