Grants of up to $25,000 to Saskatchewan municipalities and First Nations Bands to explore and plan for the creative and cultural potential of their community through cultural engagement and planning initiatives. Applicants are encouraged to consult program staff before beginning an application.

The Municipal Cultural Engagement and Planning grant aims to advance the course of culture in Saskatchewan by providing funds to municipalities in areas not typically funded by conventional support systems.

The MCEP program objectives are to:

1) Support municipal initiatives that explore, engage and plan for culture and the cultural life of a community;

2) Support municipal cultural planning, development and investment that is coordinated and integrated with community planning and community development;

3) Support initiatives aimed at increasing communication, collaboration and cooperation amongst cultural organizations and between cultural organizations and other organizations in the community (examples: business, education, health, tourism, social, environmental); and

4) Support partnerships that promote cultural vitality, creativity and economic sustainability. Partnerships may include organizations in the culture, business, social and environmental sectors.

Examples of eligible expenses for a MCEP may include, but are not limited to, community engagement costs (meetings, promotion), consultants, facilitators, mentors, printing costs, training materials and resources, and travel and accommodation costs.
