Project Grant Program – Organizations

Calgary Arts Development is pleased to release the results of the 2019 Project Grant Program – Organizations.

This program is intended to provide equitable access to one-time project funding on a yearly basis to arts organizations not funded through the Operating Grant or City-Builder programs from 2019 onwards. It supports projects that exemplify what our artistic community has to offer and ensures citizens of Calgary continue to have access to meaningful, high-quality artistic experiences.

Phase 1 had a total of 61 eligible applicants totaling $903,166.08 requested funds and Phase 2 had a total of 45 eligible applicants totaling $687,837 requested funds. 17 projects were funded for a total of $247,224.13.

Due to some planned 2019 initiatives being deferred to 2020, Calgary Arts Development was able to reallocate dollars to Project Grants for applicants that were assessed just below the funding line.

The table below outlines those that received a grant, the project they applied for, and the amount of funding.

For more information about the assessment process for this program, please refer to the Project Grant Program – Organizations Terms of Reference.
