Core multi-annual funding

Core Multi-Annual Funding (CMAF) supports the core activities of arts and heritage organisations that meet the strategic objectives of the Cultural Framework.


CMAF is open to professionally run organisations that require ongoing year-round funding to deliver a core programme of activities. 

Grants are currently offered for four year periods as long as the organisation’s performance in the previous year was satisfactory. The amount of grant will be the same for each of the four years. 

Constituted non-profit arts and heritage organisations which have ongoing year-round costs, paid staff and are based in Belfast will be eligible to apply.
