Four streams of grants are available for existing non-profit organizations or community groups in Williams Lake and the Central Cariboo (CRD Areas D, E, and F) to support and develop arts and culture initiatives within this region. The funding for these grants is courtesy of the City of Williams Lake and the Cariboo Regional District (Central Cariboo Arts & Culture function), subject to the availability of funds.
The CCACS offers two grant application intakes per year:
- SPRING intake: The deadline is May 15th by 4:00pm for activities/projects taking place between July 1st and June 30th.
- FALL intake: The deadline is November 15th by 4:00pm for activities/projects taking place between January 1st and December 31st.
