There are a range of general eligibility requirements that apply to all categories of the annual Arts Funding Program. Additional and specific eligibility criteria apply to each funding category.
As a general rule, to be eligible for funding, individuals must be Australian citizens or permanent residents, resident in NSW, and be considered professional practitioners in their field; organisations must be registered not-for-profit entities, a cooperative or a trust, or a local government authority. In extraordinary circumstances, commercial organisations can apply for funding for non-profit projects, but they must obtain written approval from Arts NSW if they intend to apply for funding.
Before deciding to apply please read the detailed general and special eligibility requirements for all funding categories in the current NSW Arts Funding Program Guide or call Arts NSW for clarification.
