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.
