Financial support for costs related to pre-planning, feasibility assessments, acquisition, renovation and development of cultural spaces.
Deadline: Friday, September 24, 2010, 4:30pm
A new Cultural Infrastructure Grant Program has been created as part of the 2008 - 2023 Cultural Facilities Priorities Plan with increased levels of support for a greater variety of projects. Projects can now include pre-planning and feasibility studies as well as acquisition, renovation and development of cultural spaces. The maximum level of support from all City of Vancouver sources is 50% of the total project cost. Vancouver-based, non-profit cultural organizations may apply. The cultural space must be owned by the organization, or secured through a long term lease (minimum 10 years which may include renewable periods totalling 10 years).
We are anticipating an extremely competitive application process for the Cultural Infrastructure Grant Program. Potential applicants should contact, well in advance, a staff member to discuss their project. More information is available online or contact staff at Cultural Services: 604.871.6434.
