Community Sustainability Reserve

Funding Process: There is no open call for funding. Funds are allocated to community associations and social recreation groups on City-owned land, based on a business case completed by a City liaison (i.e. neighbourhood partnership coordinator or sport liaison) when there is an extraordinary need for operating funds to move an organization out of crisis into long-term stability.

In 2019 The City of Calgary allocated $205,662 to two community organizations from this reserve fund.

In 2018 The City of Calgary allocated $57,256.00 to five community organizations from this reserve fund.

COVID-19 relief funding support

On May 11, 2020, City Council approved $6 million in relief funding directed toward community associations and social recreation groups with a Lease/License of Occupation (Council Policy - CSPS011) with The City of Calgary. These funds were approved to support groups to cover a portion of their non-negotiable operating costs for up to 12 months due to the impacts of facility closures brought on by COVID-19 health restrictions. 

The City is proud to have supported our community partners through the ongoing challenges brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic. The following organizations received COVID-19 Relief Fund support:
