Government of Alberta – Community Initiatives Program (CIP) Project-Based Program Updates and Grant Information Sessions

Feb 28 2020

Community Grants with Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women has updated the Community Initiatives Program (CIP) Project-Based grant program. These updates will be effective for the May 15, 2020 intake and all intakes moving forward. The updates include broadening the program mandate to consider many projects previously funded through the Status of Women Community Grants program.

The CIP Project-Based grant program continues to provide grants to eligible organizations for community projects, new programs, one-time initiatives, program expansions, and community events in Alberta.
