New grant promotes cultural awareness, inclusions

Government is accepting applications for a new grant program designed to build greater cultural awareness and more inclusive communities.

The Multiculturalism, Indigenous and Inclusion Grant revitalizes the Anti-Racism Community Grant to support a broader range of projects. Projects will focus on promoting cross-cultural understanding, celebrating diverse backgrounds and helping Albertans understand the impacts of discrimination.

“We want Alberta to be a place where all people feel their culture is valued and respected. I’m thrilled to launch the new Multiculturalism, Indigenous and Inclusion Grant to help support projects that will create relationships and better understanding among diverse communities. For those who are our first peoples, or who are multi-generational, to those who arrived as new Canadians yesterday, these projects will build a foundation for all Albertans to connect and work together.”

Leela Sharon Aheer, Minister of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women

The maximum funding amount per project is $25,000 on a matching basis. Non-profits can apply to either the multiculturalism and inclusion projects stream or the Indigenous projects stream. Projects can be stand-alone initiatives, new programming or resources for training and education, capacity-building or enhancing cultural awareness.

The first intake of the Multiculturalism, Indigenous and Inclusion Grant closes Jan. 7, 2020.

Budget 2019 invests $61.2 million in the Community Grants Program for non-profits to deliver social, recreational and cultural programs and support to Albertans.
