Project Accelerator Grant

Deadline: TBA

Project Accelerator grants are designed to support individuals and organizations undertaking small scale heritage projects that tell Edmonton stories in unique or innovative ways.

In response to COVID-19, EHC is continuing to prioritize projects that align with one of the following areas:

Digital Heritage Experiences (maximum $10,000) – to provide assistance to individuals/organizations to support new initiatives that share Edmonton’s stories through digital or virtual media.

Individual Seed (maximum of $5,000) – to provide assistance to individual heritage practitioners to complete preliminary planning or research towards a larger heritage project.

Who Is Eligible?

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 download the PDF files before filling in the different fields.

Who Is Not Eligible?

Applicants cannot have already been awarded an HCIP Project Accelerator Grant during the current calendar year. Applicants must not have any overdue final reports from previous HCIP grants.

HCIP excludes educational institutions and government owned and/or operated facilities. Individuals employed by these institutions are also ineligible, unless they can demonstrate that the project is outside of their professional role within the organization and will be of value in the broader heritage sector.

Projects are not eligible if work has already begun or is planned to begin prior to receiving notification about grant results from the Edmonton Heritage Council.
