The Community Culture Development Fund (CCDF) is a City of Red Deer grant program that provides financial support to not-for-profit organizations delivering arts, culture, and heritage initiatives in our community. Grant funds are intended to assist organizations, build their capacity to provide a service, manage a cultural facility, act as an umbrella organization for other cultural organizations, develop new cultural programs and services, and/or produce a community-based special event or festival.
Provides support to service providers to offset operational costs required to deliver culture programs and services within the community. Intake for three years funding cycle - 2019, 2020, and 2021 will open May 15 and closes June 30, 2018.
The application form will be available online from May 15 - June 30.
Any applicant that believes there has been an error in fact or process with their application may make an appeal. Disagreement with a funding decision in itself does not warrant an appeal.
Provides support to offset short notice and/or one-time costs related to unforeseeable culture opportunities where longer term planning was not possible.
Applications for this category are accepted year-round, until funding is fully expended.
Intake for the 2019 funding year will open May 15, 2018.
The community Public Art Grant Program supports the development of collaborative art projects between community groups and/or businesses, artists, and The City of Red Deer with the shared financial support of the project sponsor and The City.
