- Music Capital Scheme – Award 2 supports the purchase of musical instruments by individual established professional performing musicians
- Music Capital Scheme – Award 3 supports the purchase of musical instruments by individual emerging professional performing musicians
The Scheme will be launched on the 15th December and applications will be accepted until 2pm, Tuesday 28th February 2023.
