Grants from the Project Accelerator program offer financial assistance (up to $10,000) to people and groups working on modest historical projects that convey the stories of Edmonton. Contact the EHC Grants Staff at [email protected] if you have any inquiries about our grants.
Where to Apply?
Our portal system is currently receiving our applications. This implies that you will be required to respond to a series of questions rather than assembling a formal application.
Please plan and save your responses using our application spreadsheet, which is available here.
They advise candidates to save their responses on the worksheet because the portal system is still in its infancy, and there may be technical difficulties.
Before the following run, further information on how to use the portal system will be made accessible.
Before submitting your application, please obtain this stream’s updated budget form, signing page, and grant requirements. On the worksheet, a complete list of required attachments is provided.
Who Can Apply?
The applicant must be a person, a legally recognized non-profit organization, or a group of people whose place of residence or employment is in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region to be eligible.
If submitting an application as an individual, the candidate must be at least 18 years old and a citizen or permanent resident of Canada.
Before submitting your application, please download the updated budget form, application form, and grant requirements for this stream.
Please be aware that grants are taxable income and must be declared on personal income taxes. The organization or person listed as the applicant on the grant application form will receive the award payment is approved. EHC cannot split grant monies among several recipients or provide monthly grants.
If you have inquiries about disclosing this income, EHC advises consulting a professional accountant.
Who Does Not Qualify?
The current calendar year cannot have already seen the recipients of an HCIP Project Accelerator Grant. Candidates must have submitted all required final reports for prior HCIP-funded projects and reimbursed any unused grant money. Additionally, applicants whose past HCIP-funded projects have received extensions are ineligible to submit.
HCIP does not cover education institutions and facilities owned or operated by the government. Employees of these organizations are also disqualified unless they prove that the initiative is unrelated to their position at the company and would benefit the more significant heritage industry.
Projects are not eligible if work has already started or is scheduled to start before receiving word from the Edmonton Heritage Council about grant outcomes.
What Date Is It Due?
The following dates are approaching for Project Accelerator Grant submissions:
- March 4, 2022
- September 2022
Your application must be submitted using the portal system. In late January, instructions on how to use the portal will be made available.
The deadline day has a 4:00 PM application deadline.
To communicate grant funding results, all award recipients are expected to submit a Final Report to the EHC. Final Reports must be submitted 90 days after the project is finished or by the deadline stated in the letter of agreement that the EHC and the organization that won the grant have signed (whichever comes first). Use the forms that you can download below to submit your final report.
