Operational Grant

Deadline: Friday, September 27, 2019

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.

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. Applicants must have no outstanding final reports or unused previous grant funding from the Edmonton Heritage Council. Heritage organizations that have a dedicated facility must be open at least 200 hours per the calendar year. Those without a dedicated facility must have ongoing public programming that promotes Edmonton’s heritage.

Who is not eligible?

This program excludes educational institutions, recreation centres, community leagues, health facilities, religious institutions, and government-owned and/or operated facilities.
