COVID-19 Update for March 23, 2020

March 23, 2020

We would like to reassure artists and arts organizations that OAC will be flexible and will work with grant recipients facing unanticipated expenses and changes related to COVID-19. We will not ask for repayment of grants for which related expenses have been incurred and will keep disbursing grant payments even in cases of altered events and plans. Our priority is to support Ontario art organizations, artists and arts professionals to get through this pandemic situation in strength and solidarity.
