Calgarians are looking for ways to safely participate in public events like they did before the COVID-19 pandemic. This Microgrant program is meant to support the additional costs for events to meet changing public health guidelines. Keeping arts, culture, sports and/or recreation events safe will improve the wellbeing of citizens and our communities.
There is $75,000 available to support arts, culture, sports and recreation events.
Applications will be accepted from July 20 to November 13, 2020. Apply early – the program closes November 13 or as soon as all funding is allocated.
The host organization must be a registered legal entity in good standing; as a not-for-profit, charitable organization or Calgary Business Improvement Area. Events can be in-person or virtual/online. Event date must be between July 20, 2020 through December 31, 2020 (this program cannot fund projects that are before July 20, 2020).
Other requirements include:
