Letters of Support

Arts Mid North Coast is often asked to provide a letter of support when individuals or groups in the community are applying for grants. We are happy to receive such requests but it should not be seen as automatic that a letter will be given. We do not have a pro forma approach to such requests.

We have two perquisites to consider such requests.

  1. They must except in exceptional circumstances be made at least one week prior to the closing date.
  2. Applicants will need to provide us with a draft of their application.

These two requirements are connected as we see our role to review your grant to determine if we can support it or not. If not we will seek to highlight how it could be improved or enhanced so that it could be supported. This process requires time.
