Applications for current intake accepted until November 1, 2018
The Government of Alberta has developed an Anti-Racism Community Grant program (ARCG)
intended to support local non-profit organizations in raising awareness and understanding of racism and its impacts on all Albertans. Although municipalities are not eligible to directly apply for ARCG funding, RMA members are encouraged to pass ACRG information on to non-profit organizations operating in their communities.
ARCG outcomes are to:
- Address the causes and consequences of racism in communities across Alberta
- Increase an organization’s capacity in supporting individuals who are impacted by racism
- Increase access to services, information, and advice concerning racism
- Increase opportunities for people to learn, discuss, and address the impacts of racism in their community
- Encourage participation of individuals, businesses, institutions, and governments to collaboratively support anti-racism in their community
- Increase an organization’s ability to address the systemic causes and consequences of racism
A variety of projects are eligible for ARCG funding, but priority is given to those with a broad scope, those from applicants who have not previously received provincial funding for other projects, and those that have annual operating budgets between $0 and $499,999. The maximum funding an organization can request in one year is $25,000. Provincial funding must be matched by the organization, although matching can take the form of donated labour, materials, services, or a combination of such. Up to $5,000 of unmatched funding will also be considered. Although the current intake period closes on November 1, 2018, there is expected to be several more intake periods throughout 2018 and 2019.
