How much funding can I apply for?
To support projects of various sizes and scales, Dickson Grants consists of a two-tier funding model:
Through Tier 1 grants, applicants can apply for up to $10,000 to support their project. The application process for Tier 1 grants is streamlined with reduced eligibility requirements for applicants and a simpler application form.
Through Tier 2 grants, applicants can apply for between $10,001 and $50,000 to support applications that will have a demonstrably large impact on the Dickson. The application process for Tier 2 grants requires a higher level of detail, including evidence of a robust planned approach.
Before applying for funding please review the Dickson Grants Program Guidelines.
