About the program:

Funding under the COVID-19 Community Response Fund for Vulnerable Populations is made possible by a $10 million philanthropic donation from the Canadian Medical Association Foundation (CMAF).  The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) is supporting the CMA Foundation with the delivery of this initiative by providing expertise on community needs and engaging recipients. 

2021 Arts, Culture & Heritage Grants

The Arts, Culture and Heritage Funding Program of the City of Fredericton is designed to encourage new projects or activities in the creative arts, culture and heritage sectors through the provision of small grants to eligible organizations. Grants are awarded through a jury process. Due to the pandemic and the likelihood that, for most of 2021, provincial safety guidelines will remain the same as 2020, additional guidelines and criteria will be applied to the 2021 Arts, Culture & Heritage Funding program.  This is meant to encourage applications for new projects which will ensure arts and cultural vibrancy in 2021, while also avoiding funds being tied up for projects that have an uncertain capacity for delivery in 2021.  Organizations are advised to keep this in mind as applications will be evaluated with these additional criteria. 

Please read the Funding Application Guidelines below before completing the Application Form.
