Grant applicants applying for Presentation & Participation Grants – General, Publishing and Extended Play / Album – are required to submit their applications via the MCCY Grants Portal. Submissions via other means, e.g. email, hardcopies, will not be accepted for these grants. 


All applications must reach us by 23:59 (SGT) on the closing date. Late applications will not be accepted. In the event that you are awaiting confirmation from partners/collaborators, you are advised to submit your application before the closing date, and state clearly any information which is still outstanding/unconfirmed. The outstanding information should be submitted to NAC once available.


In line with efforts to encourage greater governance over grant monies, the following will apply to all P&P Grants awarded from 1 April 2020:

  • Grants $10,000 and above will require their Statement of Accounts to be certified by an accountant registered with the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA) or equivalent international body. 
  • As part of the submission during grant closure, the proof of the accountant's registration with ISCA or any equivalent international body (e.g. ISCA Membership ID) should be provided as well. 


Should you have any queries or need clarifications, please email us at and we will respond via email or assign an NAC officer to speak with you.
