HCIP & FIRE Grant Opportunities

Calling all community members with heritage stories to tell!

EHC is looking for applications to our two grant programs, FIRE (Funding Indigenous Resurgence in Edmonton) and HCIP (Heritage Community Investment Program).

  • FIRE’s Fall 2023 grant run (Deadline: September 5) is now open! As you consider how grant funding up to $10,000 may help bring your First Nations, Métis, or Inuit-led heritage project to life, visit this page to catch up on previously-funded projects, find the needed paperwork, access resources, and more. Contact apaquette@edmontonheritage.ca for assistance or feedback.
  • HCIP is accepting applications to the Project Accelerator (up to $10,000 for individuals or organizations looking to tell a small-scale Edmonton heritage story) and Research & Planning (maximum $5,000 to individuals and organizations taking the preliminary steps toward a future project) streams, each closing on September 15. Email lbush@edmontonheritage.ca for feedback and optimize your application to these and/or other HCIP streams (including Career Development and Change Capital Project Grant, which are open year-round).

For a look at some of the diverse projects we’ve funded through these programs, see our 2022 Annual Report.
