The deadline for applications for the second round of funding through the Anti-Racism Community Grant program has been extended to Nov. 19.
The grant is part of Alberta’s Taking Action Against Racism initiative. Funding is provided to support community-based projects aimed at creating greater awareness and cross-cultural understanding of racism and its impact on Albertans.
Eligible non-profit organizations can apply for matching grants of up to $25,000 to support a range of projects including:
- training and education
- development of informational resources
- support services
- capacity building
Announced on July 3, 2018, funding is available through two grant streams. The Community Anti-Racism funding stream provides support for anti-racism projects or initiatives with a broader community focus. The Indigenous Anti-Racism funding stream provides support for projects or initiatives that affect Alberta’s First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples.
- The Alberta government has committed $2 million to the Anti-Racism Community Grant program in 2018-19.
