Project Accelerator Grant

Deadline: March 6, 2020

Project Accelerator grants are designed to support individuals and organizations undertaking small scale heritage projects that tell Edmonton stories in unique or innovative ways. The Project Accelerator grant will support up to $10,000 of eligible expenses.

Who is eligible?

Applicants must be an individual, a collective of individuals, or a registered organization whose residence or location of work is in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region. The project must have programming and interpretation specifically about Edmonton stories and have a demonstrated benefit to the residents of Edmonton.

Who is not eligible?

This program excludes educational institutions and government. Individuals employed by these institutions are also ineligible, unless they can demonstrate that the project is outside of their professional role within that organization and will be of value to the broader heritage sector. 

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

When is the deadline?

Project Accelerator Grants are offered several times throughout the year. The first two deadlines for this grant stream are below, with further relevant dates to be announced by late March of this year.

      • March 6, 2020
      • June 5, 2020
