Settlement Grant for Alberta’s Ukrainian Organizations (Closed)
The Ukrainian Canadian Congress-Alberta Provincial Council Settlement Grant for 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 engagement projects that Ukrainian organizations would like to offer to assist individuals and families 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 possibly join 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.
To date, the UCC-APC has received many generous donations from the provincial government, various organizations, businesses, and friends. This fund will expand to $50,000 to support Ukrainians newcomers to engage in Ukrainian community organizations that support culture and Ukrainian language. The grant funding will be dispersed on a first come first serve basis for eligible projects meeting the criteria. Each project requires an application submission.
