The mandate of the Cultural Grants program is to promote and assist in the development of the arts in all its diversity for the enjoyment and benefit of all Barrie residents and visitors.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic the 2021 grants program has been simplified and streamlined as an online process to serve the needs of Barrie’s not-for-profit arts organizations.
There are two grant types available: Operating Grants and Project Grants. Operating Grants are specifically for not-for-profit organizations that have been in existence in the community for over two years and have an established history of excellence in the arts.
Project Grants are for up to $5,000 and support new initiatives and special projects as well as serve to support smaller arts organizations' operations.
Groups that apply for Operating Grants of under $50,000 may also apply for a Project Grant provided that the project is unique and separate from their regular annual operations. If your organization is applying for both, please do not reference your Project Grant in your Operating Grant application.
The deadline for submission is 4:30 pm on Friday, January 22, 2021. Applications will not be accepted after this time.
New for 2021: Applications and supplemental forms must be submitted electronically via APLI.
Carefully read the Barrie Cultural Grant Guidelines 2021 prior to beginning the application process. This will help you determine which forms are required and provide you with key information relevant to completing your application.
**If your organization applied and received funds in 2020, you will need to complete the Report Form for Barrie Cultural Grants 2020 and submit it to email@example.com by January 4, 2021 to be eligible for 2021 funds.
The City of Barrie Cultural Grant applications are judged by a panel of individuals with significant expertise in the arts. City of Barrie staff select these individuals from other municipalities across the province to participate in the jury process. If you know of an individual that has extensive education and/or experience in the arts and you believe they would be an objective juror you are welcome to recommend them by completing the Jury Panel - Recommendation Form and submitting it to the Economic & Creative Development Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
