Q. Can this grant be leveraged with another grant?

A. Yes! You can definitely use this grant in combination with others.

Q. When will you be reimbursed?

A. You will be reimbursed and receive your grant in the month of October. Hence, we require all of the cost for materials and other payments to be finalized by the end of September.

Q. Does your project need to be completed by September?

A. We are encouraging applicants to get their projects completed by the end of September because we would love to see communities activated by the Fall of this year.

Q. When would you need City Permits by?

A. You will need to get City permits before you start developing your project, if your project needs City permits. This would require you to get City permits as soon as possible in order to have your project developed by the end of September. If you have any trouble getting your permits, feel free to reach out to us at activateyyc@calgarycommunities.com

Q. What is the difference between the $1000 and $3000 grants?

A. We are prioritizing the $3000 for projects that will need City permits as the process of acquiring these grants can be expensive. The $1000 grants are for smaller projects that are not developed on City property and hence, do not require City permits.

Q. Can you get the $3000 grant even though your project does not require City permits?

A. While you are eligible to get a $3000 grant even if your project does not require City permits, our Grant Committee will be prioritizing the $3000 grants for projects that require City permits.

Q. Can you choose which grant to apply for?

A. When submitting your application, you can certainly mention which grant you would like to receive, however, our Grant Committee will be deciding what grant your project qualifies for.
