Community Culture Grants

Community Culture Development Fund

The Community Culture Development Fund (CCDF) is a City of Red Deer grant program that provides financial support to not-for-profit organizations delivering arts, culture, and heritage initiatives in our community. Grant funds are intended to assist organizations, build their capacity to provide a service, manage a cultural facility, act as an umbrella organization for other cultural organizations, develop new cultural programs and services, and/or produce a community-based special event or festival.

We are working diligently to update our grant forms, as we do, please note our new contact information.
