City of Kingston Heritage Fund Operating Grants

The City of Kingston Heritage Fund (CKHF) operating grants help provide a stable base of funding for cultural heritage organizations in Kingston to support their long-term sustainability and capacity building. Operating grants will support core operating expenses and programming costs, in line with municipal and cultural heritage sector objectives.

CKHF operating grants will provide funding in single-year increments.   Those organizations in receipt of a CKHF Operating Grant will be eligible to reapply in the following year. No grant will be made retroactively, or to fund deficits or shortfalls.

Two levels of operating grants are available in the 2017-18 grant cycle: Full Operating Grants, and Investment Operating Grants. CKHF Full Operating Grants will not exceed $75,000 annually, while CKHF Investment Operating Grants will not exceed $5,000 annually.
