Project grant programs provide one-time funding for time-limited projects. Project funding is available to eligible theatre organizations and collectives through the Theatre Projects program and to eligible individual artists through the Playwrights program.

In response to feedback from community consultations, TAC is piloting a Multi-Year Theatre Projects program to support independent producers to develop new works over a three year period.
These grants contribute to the direct costs associated with development and production of a theatre project, including: artistic fees; rehearsal, production and technical costs; marketing and publicity costs; administrative costs; and dissemination costs associated with extending the lifecycle of the proposed work.
The City of Toronto provides the funding for this program through its Community Partnership and Investment Program.

- Playwrights grants for individual artists
- Multi-Year Projects (pilot program) for organizations and collectives
Operating grant programs provide support to non-profit arts organizations (incorporated and unincorporated) for their ongoing activities. The funding contributes to both the artistic and administrative costs associated with the organization’s operations.
Operating programs are offered on an Annual cycle, where the assessment determines the grant allocation for the organization’s next fiscal year, and on a Multi-Year cycle, where the assessment determines the grant allocation for the organization’s next three fiscal years. The Multi-Year Operating cycle is only open to applications once every three years.
