Grants for the Arts is the Arts Council England's Lottery-funded grant for individuals, arts organisations and other people who use the arts in their work. The ongoing scheme has no application period, and submissions are taken at any time for applications of between £1,000 - £100,000.
The scheme is very popular and offers lots of opportunities for those in the jazz word - for example, funding could help support a band on tour, help promoters with the presentation of a special project, or enable a venue to purchase a particular piece of equipment - such as that long sought-after piano!
