Grants Program 2016

Accessible Arts is pleased to offer a second year of funding through its 2016 Small Grants Program.

Supported by Lifetime Care, the program consists of two opportunities for not-for-profit arts and disability services/organisations and/or for groups or individual artists with disability living in NSW.

  • The Small Grant offers funds for projects at any stage of their creative development and/or public presentation, of amounts between $5,000 – $20,000. Small Grants is now CLOSED.
  • The Quick Response Grant offers funding up to $5,000 for artist projects that demonstrate evidence of urgency, unforeseen or sudden opportunity. Currently OPEN.

Lifetime Care is one of the service lines of Insurance & Care NSW (icare), a new organisation created to deliver NSW’s insurance and care schemes. Lifetime Care manages the Lifetime Care and Support Scheme, which provides treatment, rehabilitation and care services to people severely injured in motor accidents in NSW.
