The Cultural and Built Heritage Funding Program is now open. Funded by the City of Brantford Casino Reserve Fund, the goal of this program is to provide project grants to cultural institutions for facility and infrastructure improvements, in order to ensure Brantford citizens have access to a range of high-quality arts, culture and heritage assets.
The program funds substantial capital facility and infrastructure projects for cultural institutions, including new construction, equipment, renovations, repair costs, collections maintenance expenses, and design or planning fees associated with planned capital improvements. The program can support up to 50% of eligible projects costs; proposed projects must have a minimum budget of $20,000, and funding is limited to one project per organization per year.
The City of Brantford Economic Development and Tourism Department will be hosting two information sessions on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 11am and 5pm at the Brantford Visitor & Tourism Centre (399 Wayne Gretzky Parkway). Registration is online through EventBrite by clicking here.
For more information about the program, please contact Sara Munroe, Arts & Culture Coordinator, at 510-751-9900 x5048 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for applications for the 2018-19 Cultural and Built Heritage Funding Program is Thursday, May 31, 2018 at 4:00pm.
