Applications are open for the 2013 Country Arts Support Program (CASP), which offers small grants, up to $3,000 per applicant, to regionally based arts and community organisations and local arts councils for short-term, locally initiated projects.

CASP is an annual small-grants round, funded by Arts NSW, with the responsibility for local administration passed on to regional arts agencies, such as Arts Northern Rivers.

The program provides funding towards a small number of local projects in the northern rivers each year (usually around 10), with a maximum amount of $3,000 per project.

Arts Northern Rivers suggests interested groups download the forms as soon as possible, and encourages applicants to contact the organisation to discuss their proposal.

The 2012 CASP small-grants round is open to projects taking place between January 1 and December 31, 2013. Applications close on October 2.
