Non-profit groups now have greater access to provincial funding to help them better deliver services thanks to expanded and streamlined Community Grants programs.
The changes stem from a comprehensive review of the programs by Culture and Tourism launched in 2015 to improve the way the Alberta government’s Community Grants funding is administered. The goal is to help the non-profit sector more effectively meet the needs of clients.
The Enhanced Capacity Advancement Program (ECAP) has been expanded to provide up to $225,000 per year for three years to assist organizations with a primary mandate to build non-profit sector capacity and strengthen volunteerism. Non-profits may also be eligible for funding to help improve their sustainability. Changes to the Community Grants programs are funded through the reallocation of existing resources.
