The Community League Infrastructure Program (CLIP) provides funding assistance to community leagues for capital costs to preserve and enhance existing facilities that provide an overall benefit to the community and value to the citizens of Edmonton. 

Community League Infrastructure Program (CLIP) grant priorities in 2021 will be focused on rehab and renovation projects that address:

  • Health and safety concerns, 

  • Accessibility improvements, and

  • Infrastructure issues identified in a formal assessment / inspection.  

Large grants will not be available in 2021 due to the decreased program budget.  However, the medium size grant limit will be increased to $150,000 to account for the increasing costs of rehab and renovation projects.

There are 3 different CLIP grant programs available:

  • Project Planning Grant Program
  • Standard Project Grant Program
  • Completed Project Grant Program
