The late, even missed, grant pickups lead to issues in replenishing the fund. We are required to submit signed receipts accounting for all payments before we are able to request new funds.
Even if one person did not come in, the whole next few months of grants were held up.
So after March 2015, the Art Supplies Grant will be no more.
The funds freed up will go back into the general budget for funding consumer initiatives projects. We will try to have at least one arts based project from each call for projects, continuing to support Vancouver peers to explore art.
Applicants for the Art Grant may continue to apply until February 28, 2015.
Final grants will be issued during March 2015.
