Concurrently, the Live Music Grant offers a unique opportunity for for-profit entities to secure funding for hosting inclusive and safe live music events for Mississauga residents and visitors. Aligned with the City’s Music Strategy, this grant aims to bolster the frequency and diversity of live music experiences across the municipality. Interested parties can register for informational webinars on April 10 and April 24, with the application deadline slated for April 26, 2024.

Both grant programs emphasize the importance of attending the mandatory webinars to familiarize applicants with the criteria and application procedures.

“All grant applications must be submitted online,” emphasizes a city spokesperson. “We encourage all eligible groups and organizations to take advantage of these opportunities to bring their innovative projects and live music events to life.”

Furthermore, the City of Mississauga hints at forthcoming grant opportunities and virtual sessions slated for fall 2024, underscoring its commitment to supporting community initiatives and cultural endeavors throughout the year.
