2019-2020 Cultural & Built Heritage Funding Program Now Open

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 (not including staffing), and design or planning fees associated with planned capital improvements. The program has two streams that can support up to 50% or 100% of eligible project costs; proposed projects may 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 an information session on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at 5pm at the Brantford Visitor & Tourism Centre (399 Wayne Gretzky Parkway). Please RSVP to culture@brantford.ca or call 519-751-9900 to confirm your attendance.
