COVID-19 Update for March 27, 2020

March 27, 2020

OAC is acutely aware of the extensive disruption that COVID-19 is causing across the arts sector. As a result, the priorities, plans and budgets of many of our operating funded organizations must shift in response. OAC has therefore suspended all upcoming operating program deadlines and assessments while we prioritize processing payments to operating grant recipients as soon as we are able. We recognize the urgent need for organizations to access their operating funds under current circumstances and we are working to address that.


For a full list of COVID-19 news and changes, please see OAC’s COVID-19 update page, and full FAQs and Guidelines.
