Emergency Applications

Emergency Applications

Request from applicants who have been invited to participate in arts activities outside of the country may be considered if invitations came after the announced closing dates.

Applications which have missed or ignored the closing dates for applications will not be considered through the

Emergency Funding Policy. Applications are recommended and motivated by the Arts Development Officer to the relevant Advisory Panel for consideration by the NAC.  

Arts practitioners and organisations applying for an Emergency Grant, are required to submit a completed NAC application form. The NAC requires 20 working days to respond to a request for emergency funding, provided all the required documents have been submitted. The funding for emergency funding is small and may be depleted at any given time.

The maximum amount that may be granted for emergency applications is R250 000. Please see conditions for touring projects, residencies and conferences.
