Announced on July 3, 2018, the Anti-Racism Community Grant is part of the province’s Taking Action Against Racism initiative to create greater awareness and cross-cultural understanding of the impact of racism on Albertans.

“As Albertans, we all have a role to play in taking a stand against racism, and the Alberta government is proud to support the efforts of non-profit organizations in communities across the province. Projects supported by the Anti-Racism Community Grant will help to address racism at both an individual and systemic level, creating a more inclusive province.”

~Ricardo Miranda, Minister of Culture and Tourism

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

The province has committed $2 million to the Anti-Racism Community Grant program in 2018-19. Funding is available through two distinct 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.
