- Arts, Music and Theatre
- Food & drink
- Sports and Outdoors
- Business and Education
- Other (to be specified)
Please Note: There is no guarantee of funding and eligible applications will be evaluated on a competitive basis against the criteria set out in the Applicant Guidelines.

Applications received after this date will not be considered.
