The minimum grant is $15,000.
Funding is dispersed in two payments, one in late April and one in late August.

submit completed applications through the ArtsNL online application system and CADAC online database (for statistical and financial information) by 11:59 p.m. on the application deadline,
complete financial and statistical information on the CADAC website (www.thecadac.ca). New applicants will be required to input six years of financial data and one year of statistical data in the CADAC system.
The SPPAO operates on a three-year cycle. New applicants may apply only in the first year of the cycle. Potential first-time applicants to the SPPAO must contact the program manager by December 15 to confirm eligibility and approve the creation of a CADAC account for the organization to submit statistical and financial information.
In year one of the SPPAO funding cycle, eligible professional not-for-profit arts organizations may submit applications to both the SPPAO and the Annual Operating Program for Professional Arts Organizations (AOPPAO). If the organization is funded in the SPPAO, the application to the AOPPAO will be pulled from funding consideration.
