(Red Deer, Alberta)

The City of Red Deer will accept applications for the Community Culture Development Fund grant program (Culture Development category) starting November 1, 2016.

The program, formerly known as the Culture Fee for Service grant program, has been in place for 16 years and provides financial support to not-for-profit organizations that deliver arts, culture and heritage initiatives in Red Deer.

“Our community’s unique culture is conveyed through artistic expression, creative citizens, public art, natural and built heritage features, cultural heritage, festivals, special events, and more,” said Tara O’Donnell, Culture Superintendent. “The Community Culture Development Fund is designed to support these initiatives and build the kind of vibrant community that Red Deerians have expressed is important to them.”

The intake period for the Culture Development category for the 2017 funding year will run from November 1 – December 15, 2016. Intake for the Culture Opportunities category is year-round, until funds have been fully expended.
