2024 anti-racism grant applications open

A total of $1.395 million in grant funding is available to local community and not-for-profit organizations. City Council approved funding for the program to support the Anti-racism pillar of the City’s Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Strategy.

The program supports projects and initiatives that achieve the City’s goals of making Edmontonians more aware of racism and its impacts, supporting community organizations working to dismantle individual and structural racism, and building a diverse, inclusive and equitable city.

The grants will be issued through four streams:

  • Community Activation: to be used by communities and grassroots organizations to activate and animate projects/events led by and supporting youth and/or seniors, with priority given to intercultural and intergenerational anti-racist initiatives. 
  • Local Anti-racism Capacity Building/Innovation: focused on local grassroots organizations working on anti-racism activities and actions that address barriers to participation, promote healing and/or reconciliation, illuminate and combat structural racism, and support sustaining developmental change (e.g. projects to build relationships with other communities also impacted by racism, projects that uplift the stories of people impacted by racism, community needs assessments and responses).
  • Local Community Participatory Action Research: to be used by communities impacted by racism to support community-led research activities which address local issues and concerns specific to their communities. 
  • Shifting the Perspective: this funding stream is specifically for not-for-profit organizations in the media sector. Projects will support stories led by underrepresented communities to shift the narrative on racism.

The deadline for applications is Thursday, September 12, 2024.
