AUMA attempts to highlight WIC-related funding opportunities on this page. Due to the changing nature of government grants and funding, this information should not be considered an exhaustive list of all available funding for inclusion work.
Funding Offered by AUMA
Measuring Municipal Inclusion Grant
AUMA is currently offering up to $50,000 to support Alberta municipalities to use AUMA’s Measuring Inclusion Tool for Municipal Governments to evaluate the inclusiveness of their organization and to advance strategies that will propel the municipal government to be a more inclusive employer, service provider, and community leader.
Applications will be accepted until August 27, 2019.
WIC Educational Support
Depending on financial capacity, AUMA’s Welcoming and Inclusive Communities initiative may offer opportunities to bring training and education workshops directly to your community. Contact us to explore this opportunity further.
Funding Offered by Other Organizations
