The City of Lethbridge is now accepting applications for the 2019 Heart of Our City Activity Grant. The purpose of the Activity Grant is to provide funds to help Lethbridge organizations host festivals and events that foster an exciting, vibrant downtown and attract audiences to the city centre.
Projects may be eligible for up to $10,000 annually provided they are not already receiving funding from other City of Lethbridge sources. Grants greater than $1,000 are conditional on the applicant organization providing 50-per-cent matching funds. This grant is not intended for fundraising events.
Heart of Our City Activity Grant applications will be accepted until October 31, 2018. Information and application forms are available at: www.lethbridge.ca/HOCactivitygrant.
The City of Lethbridge will be offering a grant information night on September 27, 2018 at 7 p.m. at City Hall that may assist organizations in preparing applications. Applications completed electronically should be e-mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications will be assessed for merit, and grants will be awarded by the Heart of Our City Committee in consultation with the City's Community Services Department. Applicants will be notified of a grant decision as soon as possible after November 16, 2018.
