In addition to the Fund's existing grant programmes for cultural institutions, such as the Activities Programmes for one or two years of support, this new four-year institutional grant programme creates an increasing chain of support possibilities for institutions within the creative industries. In this way, the Fund aims to make a resilient and dynamic design infrastructure possible.

useful to know
If you are considering applying for a four-year institutional grant, please take a look at these frequently asked questions.

'Can you submit an application to both the BIS of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and the Fund?
Yes, you can, but it cannot be awarded twice. In the event of a positive decision from the Council for Culture within the BIS, this means that the procedure and the advisory process with the Creative Industries Fund NL will be discontinued, even if it concerns two applications for different core activities. Conversely, in the event of a negative decision from the Council for Culture, this advice has no influence on the advisory process with the Fund.

'How does the Fund deal with the different codes?'
We expect all applicants to subscribe to the codes. In addition, with regard to the Fair Practice Code, the Diversity & Inclusion Code and the Culture Governance Code, you also clearly indicate where you stand now, what steps you intend to take between 2021 and 2024 and where you would like to be at the end of that period. You can explain how you deal with the codes in your organization, your programme and with regard to audience reach and communication.

'Can I qualify for the four-year institutional grant and additionally submit an application to another of the Fund's grant programmes?
Institutions receiving a subsidy on the basis of this grant programme are not entitled during the implementation period to any subsidies from the Architecture, Design, Digital Culture, Activities Programme and Festivals grant programmes of the Creative Industries Fund NL.
