Does your arts organization have space issues?

  • Outdated Washrooms?
  • Need to Expand?
  • Accessibility Challenges?
  • Looking for New Space?
  • Looking for Partners to Share Space?

The City of Vancouver Cultural Infrastructure Grant is available for Vancouver-based non-profits to assist with their cultural space projects. Success can mean  receiving up to 50% of your project budget to leverage outside funds!


It’s not too early to plan your submission. Let us help you increase the strength of your 2016 Cultural Infrastructure Grant. The first step is to meet with City staff to discuss your project and its eligibility. Don’t forget to do your research.


While meeting with staff is a required step in the application process, another way to strengthen your application is to attend the workshop! Learn the ins and outs of the process and valuable submission tips. Limited seats are available. When you call to book your meeting with City staff reserve a workshop seat as well! Contact Debra Bodner at debra.bodner@vancouver.ca or 604-873-7211.
