Arts and nonprofit organizations impacted by the June 2013 floods are eligible for additional funding to assist in their rebuilding efforts.
The funding will not only assist with reconstruction and renovation projects, but will also help address the increased demand and pressure put on critical programming as a result of the floods.
“Thousands of Albertans are still coping with significant stress and emotional anguish as they work to rebuild their homes and their lives. This funding will help ensure Albertans still have access to the valuable programs and services they need to help them recover.”
– Heather Klimchuk, Minister of Culture
Funding of $4 million will assist nonprofit/voluntary sector organizations. An additional $229,000 is being provided to arts organizations.
Funding for flood-affected arts organizations will be administered by Alberta Arts Rebuild, a partnership of over 35 government and community agencies whose mandates include direct support of the arts. More information about how to apply for funding will be available on www.AlbertaArtsRebuild.ca.
