EHC & HCIP FAQs in Response to COVID-19
The Heritage Community Investment Program is under review as EHC staff assesses the emerging needs of Edmonton’s heritage community in light of the current health crisis. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we evaluate how best to support our community through these challenging times. If you have any questions about current grant funding or upcoming applications, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any EHC-supported events or initiatives compelled to cancel as a result of public health concerns will not be negatively impacted in terms of access to current or future grant funding. We will provide an update to the public regarding upcoming grant deadlines on April 6, 2020.
