Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Calgarians turned to the outdoors to safely take a break, refresh and recharge. After tremendous success last winter, they have brought back their Embrace the Outdoors Grant Program in order to help Calgarians continue to focus on their mental and physical health by going outside.

The intent of this grant is to fund outdoor improvements and enhancements that welcome people to enjoy the outdoors and can be experienced by a variety of users at different times.

Projects should provide multiple opportunities for people to experience and to participate. This program is not intended to fund or support events or community-style gatherings but rather experiences that people can participate in their own time while safely enjoying the outdoors.
