Cultural Grants

Metro Vancouver’s 2021 Regional Cultural Project Grants

Funding assistance is available to arts and culture organizations for regional projects. The regional project grants support creation, production, dissemination, audience development, research, project staff and/or administrative capacity building. Project grants are awarded to a maximum of $10,000 each, though most grant amounts previously awarded range between $2,500-$5,000. The 2021 total allocation will not exceed $150,000.

Applications must be received by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, May 10, 2021.

The timeline for 2021’s regional cultural project grants will follow the schedule below:

  1. May-June: Received applications reviewed by Metro Vancouver staff;
  2. June-July: Adjudication by Metro Vancouver’s Regional Culture Committee;
  3. July-August: Final grant allocations approved by Metro Vancouver’s Board; communication to all applicants, including dissemination of cheques for successful grants.

Given the above schedule, applicants applying for grant funding should include project timelines that would begin no earlier than September 2021. Proposed projects should also reasonably consider anticipated COVID-19-related delivery options to adhere to ongoing physical distancing measures, with resilience to adjust as necessary to evolving public health orders.
