How to Apply

Who Is Eligible

You must be a First Nations, Métis, and/or Inuit person over the age of 18.

You cannot currently have a FIRE-funded project underway. Applicants can only receive one FIRE grant per calendar year.

The project must explore Indigenous heritage in some way.

The project must have clear start and end dates with a specific scope of activities (if applying as a non-profit or collective, your project must be distinct from your organization’s ongoing operations or programs).

You must be an individual, registered non-profit society, or Indigenous-led collective.

Your residence, location of work, or proposed project is in Edmonton and/or Treaty 6 and Métis homelands.

Indigenous peoples living on First Nations reserves and Métis settlements in Treaty 6 are encouraged to apply.

FIRE Grants exclude educational institutions and government owned and operated facilities. Individuals employed by these institutions are eligible if they can demonstrate that the project is outside of their professional role within the organization.

Eligible Expenses

All costs related to planning, execution, and promotion of your project are eligible except for expenses that have been incurred prior to notification of funding.

Please note that grants are taxable income that must be reported when filing personal income taxes. If successful, the grant cheque will be made out to the organization or individual identified as the applicant on the grant application form. EHC is unable to distribute grant funds to multiple recipients or make grant payments in installments. EHC recommends seeking professional accounting assistance if you have questions about reporting this income.
