The Oakville Arts Council, on behalf of the Town of Oakville administers this process at-arms length, with the applications reviewed by the Cultural Grants Review Committee commissioned by and responsible to the Board of Directors of the Oakville Arts Council.  Over the past 33 years, 78 cultural organizations in Oakville have benefited from support of approximately $3.2 million.
