Major Project Grants

March 31, 2020

From the Alberta Ecotrust website:

We are now accepting applications for our Major Projects grant program from March 2 to March 31, 2020. This is a two-stage process that begins with submitting a Letter of Intent through our Application Portal below.

NOTE: You may notice the application portal looks a bit different than in previous years. This is because we have recently moved to new Grantmaking software. As a result of this move you will need to create a new profile even if you have applied for an Alberta Ecotrust grant before.

If you have any questions or problems accessing our system please contact our grant staff via email at [email protected], or by calling 403-209-2245 or 1-800-465-2147 outside of Calgary.


Major Grants

This program is designed to support more comprehensive projects that have the potential to result in substantial environmental benefit. The application process is more comprehensive and will be undertaken in two parts. These projects must be completed within a year. Maximum grant is $30,000.
