Grant to Support Alberta’s Ukrainian Organizations

 

Purpose

The Ukrainian Canadian Congress-Alberta Provincial Council Grant to Support Alberta’s Ukrainian Organizations will provide funds to Ukrainian organizations to support Ukrainian nationals fleeing the war in Ukraine and settling in Alberta. This grant funding will cover the costs for various projects that Ukrainian organizations would like to offer in Alberta.

 

UCC-APC is a provincial organization and encourages organizations to apply for this funding to support Ukrainian nationals, engage them within the Canadian-Ukrainian community and refer to established organizations in Alberta. All applicants must come through an organization that belongs to the UCC-APC umbrella or have established working relations with UCC-APC.

 

This particular grant can assist organizations to complement but not duplicate existing government programs and services. The Government of Alberta recognized the remarkable efforts and the generosity of the community and is providing this grant to sustain some of these programs. The grant funding will be dispersed on a first come first served basis for eligible projects meeting the criteria. Each project requires an application submission.

 

Requirements and Eligibility

✔  This grant is available to Canadian-Ukrainian organizations in Alberta belonging to the Ukrainian Canadian Congress-Alberta Provincial Council (UCC-APC) and their sister organizations.

✔  To be eligible for the grant the organization must be a registered society or charitable organization in Alberta and have a bank account in the name of the organization.

✔  At this time, grants are provided to organizations to engage and support Ukrainian Nationals who are fleeing the war and/or who arrived in Canada after February 24, 2022.

✔  UCC-APC will determine the approved grant amount and will notify the applicant.

✔ Grants will be prorated based on the numbers of newcomers that can be served.

 

Grants may include funding for:

– Hosting newcomers’ events in Alberta

– Coordinating and supporting activities that are not being conducted by agencies. E.g., job fairs, coordinating access to basic necessities (donated furniture, clothing)

– Bridging newcomer gaps and aiding navigation to online services and directing them to appropriate areas and agencies. They often need some help to get started and feel confident reaching out for information and help.

✔ Grant funding cannot be used to purchase gift cards, training program cost, language programs or to provide cash to individuals, nor can it be used to pay for household improvements. Also this grant cannot be used to pay for accommodations or purchase furnishings and household items. Those initiatives are in place for newcomers.
