The much loved small grant program for community arts in Regional NSW, The Country Arts Support Program (CASP) is an annual small grants program administered by the Regional Arts Development Organisations.


Southern Tablelands Arts has opened the CASP for 2022 devolved funding through Create NSW. Small Grants of up to $3,000 are open for independent professional practising artists across all art forms, community groups, arts organisations and not for profits.


CASP 2022 will fund projects to be completed by 31 December 2022. This funding aims to be as flexible as possible. Projects do not require a specific outcome but can focus on skills development or capacity-building.


CASP is only available for projects within the territories of the 14 Regional Arts Development Orgs that form a Network across Regional NSW. 


The information on this page is the full guidelines on how to apply for funds from the STA CASP program. We recommend reading the full guidelines before completing your application.
