Cultural Grants

Metro Vancouver’s 2020 Regional Cultural Project Grants

Funding assistance is available to arts and culture organizations for regional projects. The regional project grants support research, creation, production, dissemination, audience development, 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 2020 total allocation will not exceed $140,000.

Applications must be received by 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 4, 2020.

The timeline for 2020’s regional cultural project grants has been adjusted to later in the year due to COVID-19:

  1. August: Received applications reviewed by Metro Vancouver staff;
  2. September: Adjudication by Metro Vancouver’s Regional Culture Committee;
  3. October: 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 October 2020. Proposed projects should also take into consideration any anticipated COVID-19-related delivery options to address ongoing physical distancing measures.
