Operational Grants are designed to provide limited operating assistance—up to 25 percent of an applicant’s eligible expenses—to museums, archives, and other heritage organizations so that they can continue to research, preserve, and interpret Edmonton’s heritage.
Please carefully review the grant guidelines in advance of submission, as there have been changes to eligible expenses and required documents for the 2021 Operational Grant intake. We encourage you to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of the deadline with any questions.
Who Is Eligible?
To be eligible, heritage organizations must have been registered as a non-profit society for at least one year and their activities must take place within the corporate limits of the City of Edmonton. Heritage organizations must have ongoing public programming that promotes Edmonton’s heritage.
