Funding available for community projects

The UFA Rural Communities Foundation is once again offering $100,000 in grants for community projects in Alberta. 

“We know this has been a tough year for community groups,” board chair Harvey Hagman said in a news release. “We have seen the difference our grants have made to the communities and their projects. We made the commitment to give away $100,000 a year for five years and COVID-19 has shown us the importance of these grants.” 

Registered charities and non-profits can apply for projects in one of three funding categories (educational, recreational and cultural facilities and programs). The project must be located within 200 kilometres of a UFA location and must be completed within two years. More details, application forms and info about past grant recipients can be found at The application deadline is Aug. 31.
