We are excited to bring you Neighbourhood Winter Funding opportunities!

Winter 2021-2022

WinterCity Edmonton is excited to partner with the City of Edmonton’s Neighbourhood Services to bring you one-time funding for the 2021-2022 winter season. Funding opportunities exist to support non-profit community groups in providing winter amenities and winter placemaking in safe and fun ways.

Funding is intended to encourage community-building and promote outdoor winter recreation and play. Celebrate the season and embrace the cold with these Neighbourhood Winter Funding opportunities.

Winter Rinks – Water Costs

This year we are making funding available to support groups with flooding costs for both snowbank and boarded rinks. A limited number of micro grants up to $750 are available; apply through the Winter 2021-22 Ice Surface Funding Application.
