funding opportunity image

ActivateYYC is a micro grant program offering businesses, not-for-profits and individuals to engage their neighbourhoods using temporary, cheap and cheerful initiatives that transform space into place, promote movement, safety, and neighbourliness. This program is a partnership between the City of Calgary and the Federation of Calgary Communities, first launched in May 2017.

ActivateYYC seeks to provide microgrants to individuals and organizations whose projects fit one of the three streams offered in 2023: 

  1. Wayfinding Parades and Activated Spaces - this stream is still open until funds run out or until August 15, 2023 (whichever comes first)
  2. Bump Outs and Parklets - this stream is now closed
  3. Large Public Spaces - this stream is now closed

Candidates can go over our requirements and submit their applications through the forms on each stream’s page.
