We want to help applicants understand our decisions.
Your decision letter will clearly state the main reason(s) we did not award funding and this guidance intends to help you understand our decision. These pages aim to explain the main reasons that an application to Grants for the Arts may be considered ineligible, major risk or not recommended for funding.
You can apply again to Grants for the Arts at any time; however, we cannot assess repeat applications that have not dealt with the reasons why they were not successful the first time.
How we appraise applications
We have designed Grants for the Arts to allow us to make fair decisions. We are also committed to being open and honest with you about how we appraise your application. For complete details, please read the below information sheet, ‘Appraisal process for Grants for the Arts’.
