Anti-Racism Grant funding available

CANADA, January 12 - Non-profit and charitable organizations are invited to apply for the 2024 round of Anti-Racism Grant funding.

Funding through this program will be used to develop and deliver Anti-Racism activities that benefit and impact racialized and Indigenous communities in Prince Edward Island. A total of $100,000 funding is available.

The Anti-Racism Grant has been designed to help promote a culture of diversity and inclusion, address racism and strengthen the link between racial equality and community cohesion.

“Through the first round of funding, we received many applications to address Anti-Racism through various projects and activities. It’s amazing to see community organizations develop Anti-Racism initiatives that help Islanders become more aware and better informed about the racism and discrimination that, unfortunately, does exist in our province.’’

- Premier Dennis King
