Granting Streams

There are 3 Granting Streams available: Microgrant, Individual Community Grant, and Multi-Community Grant.

Under $5,000

The Microgrant is intended for individual communities seeking to implement small-scale projects to support Animators’ work in their community. The application process involves a shorter, streamlined application form to reflect the smaller amount of funds requested.

The Individual Community Grant is intended for individual communities seeking to implement medium- to large-scale projects in their community. The application process for an Individual Grant is more comprehensive than the Microgrant.

The Multi-Community Grant involves partnerships between Animators in different communities who are teaming up to create a broader or regional project that will support their respective communities. This stream aims to foster collaboration and allow Animators to work together and leverage each other’s strengths and assets on a broader scale. Each community in the partnership must have a trained Animator who is involved in the project.
