Through the Local Tour Grants Program, the CCP CED endeavors to support and motivate local cultural performing groups to achieve artistic excellence and promote local art and cultural expressions in various venues and communities and more importantly, present the flourishing of arts and culture in the regions. Since it was re-established in 2014, the program has assisted twenty five (25) region based performing groups and reached an estimate audience of 49,432 pax in 35 local communities/provinces from 2014 to 2017.
