Anti-Racism Community Grant Deadline Extended

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.
