To support, organize and administer these grants, The Federation of Calgary Communities has partnered with The City of Calgary and Walk21 to introduce the ActivateYYC program to local communities!
What is ActivateYYC?
ActivateYYC will provide 150 microgrants – averaging $750 – to groups and businesses to experiment with local projects and events that motivate Calgarians to Walk, Play & Be Neighbourly. These projects and events are meant to be quick, fun and low-cost ideas that aim to make a small part of the City more lively and enjoyable.
ActivateYYC is an opportunity to bring fun and engaging projects to our community by testing the approval and permitting processes, educating the City and inspiring future activators.
ActivateYYC will encourage applicants to build partnerships, seek sponsors and engage volunteers.
ActivateYYC will also create a lasting impact in local communities and inspire future walking projects.
Want to get people walking, playing & being neighbourly? Interested in creating new connections? We are looking for new and great ideas! Apply for an ActivateYYC microgrant today!
