Arts Funding


Community Arts Investment Program - Category 1

The Community Arts Investment Program (CAIP) provides guidelines and criteria for The Corporation of the City of London to:

  • provide operating financial assistance to not -for-profit organizations or individuals within the London arts community;
  • encourage public awareness and appreciation of the arts;
  • increase access to quality local arts programming; and,
  • enhance London’s desirability as a community.

This category applies to an incorporated, not-for-profit arts organization with a board of directors representing community interests and with operating revenues in excess of $1,000,000 and with an operating season of no less than five months in duration.

Category 1 will not include:   museums, Museum London, cultural organizations, and organizations not located within the City of London.   However, these types of organizations, if they meet the program criteria, may continue to seek operational financial assistance from other existing City programs.

The grant applied for must not be intended or used for capital purposes including, but not restricted to, the purchase of land, equipment, fixtures or physical facilities.  An application for assistance under the Community Arts Investment Program does not preclude an organization from applying for capital assistance under the City of London’s Capital Grants Program.
