Projects Fund

The Projects Fund provides funding assistance to projects that sustain and contribute to the growth of the arts, sport and recreation within Yukon for the benefit and enjoyment of Yukon people.

The Projects Fund replaced the Recreational Projects Program on April 1, 2018. Funding for equipment, small construction, festivals, events, and productions continues to be available under the Projects Fund and new funding is available for:

  • small opportunity projects (up to $2,500);
  • large strategic projects (over $50,000); and
  • recurring, low risk, and high benefit projects.

There are two ways for Yukon non-profits to access funding:

  • Regular Intake: Apply in spring and fall for medium projects (up to $50,000 for equipment, minor construction and renovations; up to $20,000 for festivals, events, productions and other projects) and large strategic projects (over $50,000). In 2018 intake dates are April 13 and October 15.
  • Opportunity Projects: Intake is ongoing until the program is fully subscribed for the fiscal year. Funding is available for small opportunity-driven projects whose total project costs do not exceed $7,500. Funding is available up to $2,500. Applications must be received at least 10 business days before the proposed project start date.

If you are applying for funding or a current funding recipient and require assistance, please contact the Lotteries Yukon office.
