City offers new grant up to $25,000 to support Edmonton businesses
Starting June 7, Edmonton’s business community can apply for matching funds of $10,000 to $25,000 from the Edmonton Economic Action Plan Grant.
This $2.08 million grant program is one of a number of tools under the City of Edmonton’s Economic Recovery Program that supports economic diversification and growth, and recovery efforts of Edmonton businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The grant supports the expansion of a range of products or services to reach new markets and long term resiliency to increase local businesses’ ability to adapt to changing economic conditions.
There are a range of eligible projects supported by the grant—from initiatives that reduce barriers to employment, to new business opportunities for marginalized communities, to supporting the opening of new child care facilities. Matching funds of up to $25,000 are available and could support a minimum of 83 projects. The grant will be available through 2022, or until funding is fully utilized.
