Guidelines: Project Grant Program – Organizations

Calgary Arts Development is pleased to release the full guidelines for the 2022 Project Grant Program for Organizations. Applications open on July 18 for a September 6, 2022, deadline.

This program is intended to provide one-time project funding to registered non-profit arts organizations and current operating grant clients in Calgary (known as Mohkínsstsisi in Blackfoot). The Project Grant Program seeks to support projects that align with any of the following priority areas:

  • Projects that reflect and contribute to the vibrancy and vitality of Calgary’s arts sector and create opportunities for Calgarians to access artistic experiences.
  • Projects that create opportunities to attract, restore, and retain jobs for artists and arts professionals.
  • Projects that support organizational development, including projects related to the reopening, recovery, and resiliency of the arts sector, or strengthen the organization’s ability to connect with their community.
  • Arts-centered projects that encourage everyday creativity, including cross-sector collaboration, creative economy, and neighbourhood-level community initiatives.

Organizations may apply for up to $25,000. Total funding available for this program is $500,000.

How to Apply

Applications are accepted through our online grant interface. The application form will be available on the date the program opens. If your organization has not applied to a grant from Calgary Arts Development before, you must create an organization profile in order to apply. If the organization’s primary contact also has an individual artist profile, they must use a different email address to create the organization’s account.

Please note that Calgary Arts Development staff continue to work remotely. If you have any questions about this program, please review the Investment Program FAQ or contact Perpetual Atife, Grant Program Specialist, at or 403.264.5330 ext. 229.
