Fort Dauphin Museum will help the community celebrate its 125th birthday this summer, thanks in part to a grant through the Community Celebrations program of the Arts, Culture and Sport in Community Fund.
The museum received $5,000 to help organize the July 11 birthday party.
Through the program Manitoba government awarded $323,000 to 67 community events across Manitoba, Department staff evaluated grant applications based on project goals and eligibility, feasibility, and community impact.
The $100-million fund was established in August 2022 to support arts, culture and amateur sport.
Funding is distributed through three programs:
• large capital projects;
• small capital projects and special initiatives; and
• community celebrations.
Applications for the Community Celebrations program are reviewed quarterly.
The current intake for the program is open until Mar. 15.
