Due to budgetary constraints, the NAC may not be in a position to fund the entire budget of a project.

Applicants are therefore advised to seek further funding from other sources. Generally, funding will be for artistic programmes. Quotations for costs should accompany the application form and applicants MUST declare all other sources of funding. The maximum period for running a project is twelve months. Where administrative costs amount to more than 15% of the total budget, this expenditure should be justified. Organisations and individuals are funded once in a financial year.

Applicants are encouraged to carefully read the NAC statements on the new call for applications and ensure adherence to Covid-19 restrictions and protocols.

Projects applied for must be located at the address indicated on the form. Any change of address must be communicated to the NAC offices within seven (7) days of such a change.

All applications must apply online through the Grants Management System on https://nac.praxisgms.co.za/

Types of projects

The maximum amount that can be applied for should not be in excess of R500 000.

Budgetary items that may be considered

Touring Projects

Applications for touring projects will only be considered if the proposed tour contributes to the national profile of the company or group and adds value to the lives of South Africans in general.

Applicants who have been invited to perform abroad should have some form of financial support from the host country or host organisation.

The host country/organisation should send proof of costs that they will cover such as, accommodation, food, daily subsistence allowance and transport within the country. A letter of invitation from the host organisation should also accompany the application to the NAC. The NAC cannot consider any application for overseas travel if the required documentation is not provided. In all cases, the NAC cannot be the sole funder.

Residencies

The NAC may provide financial assistance when the applicant is delivering a paper on condition that the conference organisers are covering other costs such as accommodation, transport within their country and meals. Under normal circumstances, funding will not be provided to full‐time academics that have university‐ based funding sources for conference attendance.
