City of Kingston Heritage Fund Operating Grants

The City of Kingston Heritage Fund (CKHF) operating grants help to provide a stable base of funding for cultural heritage organizations in Kingston, by support  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 and will be awarded on a per annum basis.  Successful organizations in receipt of a CKHF Operating Grant will be eligible to reapply in successive grant cycles.

 Two types of operating grants are available in the 2019-2020 grant cycle: Full Operating Grants, and Investment Operating Grants. CKHF Full Operating Grants provide up to $75,000 annually, while CKHF Investment Operating Grants provide up to $5,000.  Please see CKHF Guidelines for more information.


Please note that the City of Kingston Heritage Fund 2019-2020 grant cycle is now closed.  The next cycle, 2020-2021, will be announced in late spring 2020.
