Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Toronto, Ontario nonprofit arts organizations, both incorporated and unincorporated, that are engaged in ongoing community arts activities that contribute to cultural life. Funding through this program supports both operations and programming of qualifying arts organizations. Please note that this cycle is only open to organizations that have previously received project grants from the funding source.

The purpose of this grant is to support art practices at a community level that creates a powerful sense of inclusion, understanding, and the possibility of self-expression among participants. Community arts can involve one or more art practices, such as music, dance, theatre, visual arts, and storytelling. The collaborative involvement of professional artists with community members is a necessary component.

Pre-Application Information:

TAC does not fund 100% of an applicant’s budget. Applicants may receive less than the full amount requested.

First-time applicants are organizations that did not receive an operating grant last year. The next time first-time applicants may apply for an operating support grant is 2018.

Organizations may receive only one grant per calendar year through the Community Arts program and may not apply to other TAC discipline programs.

Operating grant recipients may receive a maximum of one additional grant per calendar year and must submit a final report on that project before applying to another program in the Strategic Initiatives envelope.
