LOTTERY FUNDING (article first published : 2002-01-20)

The New Year brings with it a new call for applications for funding from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund (NLDTF). In 2001, a total of 3,705 applications were received for funding from proceeds of the National Lottery. By January 11, 2002, some 1,114 applicants were found to have met the requirements and were allocated R178,9 million.

A total of 2,364 applications did not meet the requirements and were rejected. The balance of the applications are due to be adjudicated in the next weeks and the final list of beneficiaries for the financial year would soon be made available.

The Distributing Agencies have subsequently come up with a revised set of qualifying criteria for the 2002/2003 financial year. New applications and proposals are invited from organisations that meet the criteria set out by the different Distributing Agencies as well as those that have been gazetted.

In the last round of funding, many of the applications were rejected because of insufficient information supplied and/or incomplete applications. All applicants are therefore urged to ensure that all the relevant information in support of their applications is included. Due to the large number of applications anticipated, it is regretted that only those applications that are fully completed and received by the deadlines will be processed and presented for adjudication.

Applications are invited from arts organisations involved in major projects; creative development; festivals; film production and development; public arts; and arts development in rural areas.

There are two closing dates for the Arts, Culture and National Heritage sector February 15 and March 15, 2002.

Applications forms are available from January 21 and must be requested by telephone 012 362-2922, fax 012 362-3899, email: arts@nlb.org.za or by writing to the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, Central Applications Office, Private Bag X101, Brooklyn Square 0075.
