Program Overview

In fall 2019, City Council established the Anti-racism Advisory Committee and approved funding of $300,000 for an Anti-racism Grants Program, which the committee would advise on.

The grant program has three outcomes:

  • Edmontonians are more aware of racism and its impact and have a greater understanding of how to take action to address it.

  • Edmontonians will be knowledgeable of the community organizations that are working to dismantle individual, systemic and structural racism.

  • Edmontonians will work together to build a diverse, inclusive and equitable city guided by anti-racism.

Applicants are encouraged to apply for the grant most appropriate for their initiative based on the intended outcomes of the project.
