If your arts and cultural space is facing a critical situation as a result of a facility emergency or urgent life-safety issue, you could be eligible for a grant to help pay for costs associated with emergency repairs or safety upgrades.
The Critical Assistance Program is a grant stream of the Cultural Infrastructure Grant Program that can provide up to $25,000 towards repairs or upgrade costs in your non-profit cultural space. Funding will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, until the annual $100,000 budget is spent.
The overarching goal is to ensure access to and the sustainability of affordable, accessible, secure cultural spaces consistent with:
- Culture|Shift: Blanketing the city in arts and culture, Vancouver’s Culture Plan for 2020- 2029
- Making Space for Arts and Culture, Vancouver’s Cultural Infrastructure Plan.
