Community Impact Project Grant

Deadline: March 18, 2022 (PAST)

Community Impact Project Grants are designed to provide assistance—to a maximum of $20,000—for individuals or non-profit organizations to undertake projects that preserve, research, document, interpret, celebrate, and raise awareness of the history and heritage of Edmonton. Projects may include a range of activities and are intended to result in diverse ways of presenting Edmonton’s stories for the benefit of all Edmontonians.

How to Apply

To be eligible, the applicant must be an individual, registered non-profit society, or collective of individuals whose residence or location of work is in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region.

If applying as an individual, the applicant must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident over the age of 18.

Please note that grants are taxable income that must be reported when filing personal income taxes. If successful, the grant cheque will be made out to the organization or individual identified as the applicant on the grant application form. EHC is unable to distribute grant funds to multiple recipients or make grant payments in installments. EHC recommends seeking professional accounting assistance if you have questions about reporting this income.
