The City of Red Deer has issued a call for applications for a one year limited funding term from the Community Culture Development Fund (Culture Development category).

The Community Culture Development Fund, formerly known as the Culture Fee for Service grant program, has been in place for 16 years and provides financial support to not-for-profit organizations that deliver arts, culture and heritage initiatives in Red Deer. The program contains two categories, Culture Development and Culture Opportunities.

The Culture Development category allows for multi-year funding requests (up to three years) and is adjudicated by the Red Deer and District Community Foundation every three years. The most recent adjudication year was 2016, meaning multi-year funding requests for 2016, 2017 and 2018 have been fully adjudicated and allotted. The next adjudication year for multi-year funding requests will be in 2019; then again in 2022 and so forth.

A total of $325,148 has been previously adjudicated for 2017, based on the multi-year funding model, with $8,962 remaining. Applications for one-year limited term funding are now being accepted. The annual intake period for the Culture Development Category runs November 1 – December 15 but the current intake has been extended to January 15, 2017. 

Intake for the Culture Opportunities category is year-round, until funds have been fully expended for the funding year.
