Oct. 10, 2023 – A new capital grant will help Alberta’s agricultural societies with facility repairs and upgrades.

Alberta’s government is launching the Agricultural Societies Infrastructure Revitalization Program, a new capital grant that allocates $2.5 million annually to help ag societies update existing facilities.

These buildings are central hubs in their communities, offering residents and visitors opportunities to gather, build connections and engage with their neighbours.


The program will allow agricultural societies to address issues related to aging infrastructure, ultimately extending the useful life of their community buildings.

Applications for eligible projects open on Oct. 5 and the grant can be used to make improvements including roof repairs, accessibility enhancements, heating upgrades and window installations. The grant awards between $10,000 and $100,000 for individual projects.
