Investing in our communities

The Arts, Culture and Sport in Community (ACSC) Fund will provide grants to support the arts, culture (heritage, public libraries, and ethnocultural organizations) and amateur sport sectors, enhancing Manitobans' opportunities to access quality programming and facilities in their own community.

Distributed over two years, up to $100 million in funding will support three programs:

  • Large Capital Projects
  • Small Capital Project and Special Initiatives
  • Community Celebrations

The programs will allow local arts, culture and sport organizations to innovate and respond to emerging community needs, including those that are led by Indigenous, Francophone and ethnocultural communities. All eligible non-profit organizations are encouraged to apply.

If you have questions about the fund and the application process, visit Arts, Culture and Sport in Community Fund, contact, or call 1-866 Manitoba (626-4862).
