Grants of up to $50,000 to Alberta nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for capital projects at recreational and cultural facilities. Some applicants may be required to contact the funding source for a project review prior to submitting an application. Eligible uses of funds include construction, rehabilitation, or expansion costs for projects. Preference will be given first to projects that address the safety and operational viability of existing facilities, then to projects that will expand existing facilities without significant operational and maintenance cost increases. Eligible facilities must serve County of Grande Prairie residents.

Cultural Facilities: museums, libraries, art galleries, community centers, historical sites, theatres and other publicly accessible facilities intended to support the enhancement of regional civilization. 

Recreational Facilities: ice arenas, swimming pools, curling rinks, community halls, agricultural complexes, playgrounds and other publicly accessible facilities intended to support agreeable exercise or healthy pastimes.

Preference will be given to projects that:

  • Benefit a large number of County residents
  • Provide evidence that there is a large volume of volunteerism, sweat-equity and/or fundraising
  • Demonstrate success in achieving project or program goals
  • Include a well-organized business plan that includes performance measures and long term operational viability of the facility.
