Many City grants now online

To provide more streamlined and timely service to grant applicants, effective January 3, 2017, many City of Edmonton grants are now online. Before an applicant can apply online, there are a few easy steps they will need to take.  


First, every applicant will need an account ID and organization email to apply for any grant.


If an organization is unaware of their account ID, or if they are not sure if they have one, the best way to request this information is to submit the Account ID request form. A staff member will respond to the group within two business days.


Once an organization has an account ID and organization email, it belongs to that group and it won’t change. They are able to start applying for a grant immediately, for multiple grants, year-over-year.  Applying online increases flexibility for our community groups applying.  Once an application is started, they can decide when they want to stop, save their work or submit the application.


Once an application is submitted, groups are no longer able to make any changes to the application. However, if a major change is needed,  they can contact the grants office to make that change on their behalf. They are able to view all in progress and submitted applications by searching with their account ID and organization email.
