Application Process print this page

The first step in qualifying for funding is to be a registered non-profit organization. To find out how to register, contact Corporate Registries at 427-2311 in Edmonton (to be connected toll-free outside of the Edmonton area, call 310-0000) or visit Service Alberta.

CFEP and CIP applications can be submitted throughout the year. Organizations can submit one application per facility/project/initiative per fiscal year (April 1 to March 31).


A number of factors are considered in the application approval process, including: the community/region that the project will benefit; the number of applications that are received from the same community/region; and previous Alberta government and lottery grants to the applicant. This is to ensure funding is fairly distributed throughout the province. All funding decisions will be posted on the Alberta Lottery Fund website once the recipient receives the grant.

For specific guidelines, requirements and considerations of the grant foundations, please visit the individual foundations under Programs and Foundations.

Decision time will depend on how complete the application is and how many are being processed at the time. Grant application status can be requested:

By phone (1-800-642-3855)

Note: only the individual named on the grant application as having signing authority will receive status information.

Successful grant applicants will be notified by mail. All grant recipients are required to provide public recognition of the Alberta Lottery Fund and a final accounting of how the funds have been used.
