Provides funds and support for eligible organizations to undertake later stages of design, implementation and construction of a facility.

Deadline for grant applications is Wednesday March 25, 2020. Available funding in 2020 is limited.


The Construction Grant will fund work from the design phase (including schematic design) up to the end of the build phase at up to 33% of eligible costs. Land purchases made during the eligible time frame may also be funded at up to 33% of the purchase price.

If an applicant applies for funding for a later phase of their project after receiving a planning grant, funding for construction work is not guaranteed. The application will be evaluated along with other requests that year and the City of Edmonton will base its funding recommendation on the information submitted at that time. It's recommended the Final Project Report for the earlier funded phase be submitted before decisions are made on funding for the later phase.

If an application is submitted for the entire project (strategy phase work through to the end of build phase work), it's considered a Construction Grant application and eligible funding is at up to 33%.

See Community Group Led Construction Projects Guide and Templates (CGLCPG) for detailed information about phases and expectations and templates that must be used for the mandatory documents.

Contact the Grants Office to be assigned a City Liaison if you do not currently have one.
