The subsidy ceiling for 2-year programmes is € 2,000,000. The subsidy ceiling for 1-year programmes is € 1,300,000.

1 and 2-year subsidy
With the 1 and 2-year Activities Programme grant programme, the Creative Industries Fund NL is providing subsidies to cultural institutions that would like to implement a 1 or 2-year programme that contributes to the advancement of excellent quality, development and professionalization of the contemporary creative industries within the Kingdom. Programmes for 2-year support must be of national significance. Programmes for 1-year support must at least be of regional significance.

next rounds
In 2021, there will be a new round for 1-year activities programmes that take place within the calendar year 2022. In 2022, there will once again be a round where both 1-year and 2-year support for activities programmes can be applied for.
