Invoicing and Reporting
Community Impact Arts Grant grantees are awarded a one-year contract and are required to invoice the Department of Arts and Culture and report on the use of grant funds.
2020-21 Community Impact Arts Grant grantee reporting deadline is January 15, 2022 for a grant period of July 1, 2020 to December 31, 2021.
2021-22 Community Impact Arts Grant grantee reporting deadline is June 1, 2022 for a grant period of July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022.
All CIAG grants must be matched at least dollar for dollar with earned or contributed cash support. In-kind matching support is not accepted.
