Program Overview

The Operating Grant Program provides stable, predictable funding to non-profit arts organizations in Calgary. Operating Grant funds may be allocated to any area of an arts organization’s budget. 

The Operating Grant New Client Intake Program is open to applicants who did not receive an operating grant from Calgary Arts Development from 2020 – 2022. Successful applicants will be streamed into the Operating Grant Program and will receive an annual operating grant of $10,000 – $30,000 confirmed for 2023 and 2024.

Total funding available for this program is $800,000.

We will work one-on-one with applicants who experience barriers to access to develop accommodations that suit their unique abilities and situations, and continually seek to learn and address inequities in our programs and processes.
