Business Resources for COVID-19
Restrictions Exemption Program Implementation Grant
The Restrictions Exemption Program Implementation Grant provides a one-time payment to eligible businesses, cooperatives and non-profit organizations that choose to implement the Restrictions Exemption Program.
The grant provides $2,000 for eligible small- and medium-sized organizations that choose to implement the Restrictions Exemption Program. The Government of Alberta has committed $20 million in funding for the Restrictions Exemption Program Implementation Grant.
Organizations may use the funds as they see fit to help offset the costs of implementing the Restrictions Exemption Program. Full details and the application process can be found HERE.
