CAIP Grants Consultation

About this survey
We are consulting on the new draft framework for council funding of cultural organisations in Liverpool.

The new Culture & Arts Investment Programme (CAIP) aims to provide core support for the cultural sector and is planned to operate  from 2023/24 to 2025/26.  The draft framework includes eligibility and application criteria, and the proposed budgets for this period, including details of a proposed capital programme. 

We are seeking comments from potential applicants to ensure the framework communicates the council’s objectives and requirement and that the language used  is clear.

We are also seeking views on the potential impact to groups from the protected characteristics to aid the  development of an Equality Impact Assessment  that will ensure the final process is fair, enables transparent decision making and brings benefits to all sections of Liverpool’s diverse communities.

Please note the CAIP Framework document is currently a draft only, it is likely that there will  be changes to the document ahead of the CAIP application process.
The information contained in the document does not oblige Liverpool City Council to any specific course of action in the future, nor guarantee budget availability.

There are eight questions in the survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

The closing date for this survey is 7th July 2022.
