Manitoba Department of Sport, Culture and Heritage
Grants to Manitoba nonprofit arts and cultural organizations for organizational support. Funding is intended to provide assistance to qualified applicants offering arts programs to underserved urban communities throughout the Province. Through these programs, organizations aim to promote healthy lifestyles, and to enhance the social and personal development of local residents.
The Urban Art Centres Operating Support program provides financial assistance to organizations delivering arts-based programs that help to nourish personal and social development; contribute to healthy lifestyles in safe environments; and provide opportunities for targeted individuals to be engaged citizens and to play active roles in community revitalization.

- Increase the involvement of individuals, families, neighbourhoods and communities in early childhood and youth development through arts education and skills development programs aimed at personal and social development, crime prevention and healthy lifestyles.
- Support life-long learning to foster arts skills development and to provide access to career options within the arts and cultural industries.
