How do I apply online?

The work of dematerialisation of the steps undertaken for several months has allowed a harmonization at the national level of the forms of grant application. These forms are accessible from the catalogue of devices accessible on the website of the Ministry of Culture. The steps listed refer to the form that allows you to submit your grant application.

For these steps, it should be noted that if you file applications in different capacities, you will have to file as many files as applications with a global budget distinguishing the various projects for which funding is sought.

Deadlines for filing are indicated directly on each form.

This process of simplification and dematerialisation has led to the creation of three new application forms for project or operational assistance on the Simplified Steps platform.

To help you, a frequently asked questions Users This new tool is being made easier to use and the application has been posted on the department’s website.

For any questions concerning this procedure, your usual contacts within the DRAC Nouvelle-Aquitaine remains at your disposal.
