Community and arts groups can receive cash boosts of up to £1,500 from Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council.
The cultural grants on offer support a variety of schemes including performing arts projects, dance workshops, calligraphy sessions, crafts, live music and youth photography.
The council’s Grants Assessment Panel meets four times a year to decide the outcome of grant requests.
The next meeting is on 7th February and the deadline for applications is 28th January.
Cllr. Wenslie Naylon, Cabinet member for culture and active communities, said: “We are keen to support a wider range of creative and cultural activities and we particularly welcome bids for dance, drama, visual arts and media and film-based projects.”
