Stream 3 of the Arts and Culture Capital Scheme, which will provide small capital grants to not for profit arts organisations, has been launced by the Minister for Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs, Heather Humphreys.
It comes after the minister announced €9 million in funding for regional arts and cultural centres under the Arts and Culture Capital Scheme in February, which benefitted 56 organisations and venues nationwide.
Funding of €500,000 is now being made available under Stream 3 of the scheme; with individual grants of up to €20,0000 available. Application forms will be available on the Department’s website from next week.
Minister Humphreys said, “This funding scheme aims to provide capital assistance to not-for-profit organisations that have a clearly defined arts and culture remit.While the amounts involved are relatively modest, the grants will in themselves make a huge difference to these individual organisations and will be of particular benefit to local cultural centres throughout rural Ireland.”
