Calling artists and activators!
On June 1, 2017, the Federation of Calgary Communities, along with The City of Calgary, launched a brand new microgrant program—called ActivateYYC—to community residents across Calgary. If you have a neat project or idea that you want to do in your community, this grant is for you!
ActivateYYC is a new, one-time microgrant program that centres on local community projects that bring people together to walk, play, and be neighbourly. These projects employ tactical urbanism—quick, temporary, and low-cost initiatives. ActivateYYC will provide grants, averaging $750, to organized groups and businesses to experiment with temporary local projects and events that motivate Calgarians to walk, play, and be neighbourly. Projects are encouraged to be creative and to take place in any season of the year.
To support, organize, and administer these grants, the Federation of Calgary Communities has partnered with The City of Calgary and Walk21 to introduce the ActivateYYC program to local communities!
In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, there are 150 microgrants available. The application deadline for the first cycle of granting is August 15, 2017.

Together we can get all if Calgary to walk, play, and be neighbourly!
