Fee for Service program taking applications

Local non-profit arts and cultural organizations that are in need of financial support can apply for assistance from the City of Red Deer.

Local non-profit arts and cultural organizations that are in need of financial support can apply for assistance from the City of Red Deer.

The city’s Culture Department is accepting applications for its 2010 Fee for Service program.

A total of about $146,000 is available from a municipal pot for groups that qualify in one of four categories:

• organizations that build their capacity to provide a service;

• manage an arts facility;

• provide facility management services to the citizens of Red Deer;

• or act as umbrella organizations that develop new programming services for arts and culture.

The funding will come with some strings attached, said culture superintendent Kristina Oberg, who has in previous years assessed more than 30 applications.

Groups that receive funding will have to report on how the money was spent, and also attempt to get matching funds from the private sector or provincial or federal governments.

More eligibility information, along with application forms and agreements, can be downloaded from www.reddeer.ca by searching Fee for Service.

Forms can also be picked up from the Culture Services office at 3827 39th St. from Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. (the office is closed during the lunch hour).

The application deadline is Friday, Dec. 4, at 4:30 p.m.

Late applications will not be accepted by the Culture Services office.

For more information, call Oberg at 403-309-2637.
