Funding is available for: individuals and groups through community arts councils; minor capital projects; touring; arts and heritage mentoring/master classes; organizational development; major projects; artists in education; major exhibitions; major heritage capital projects; and new heritage projects.

Applications are adjudicated once a year by local arts councils and the CKCA steering committee.
