Funding is available for outdoor mural art projects that support graffiti prevention, youth empowerment, community safety and the beautification of Ottawa neighbourhoods. Projects must contribute to a clean, safe and beautiful city by engaging neighbourhoods and youth in a constructive learning process to create murals to prevent or deter graffiti.

Applications are due on April 23.  We are releasing the call for proposals with a timeline to ensure the completion of the projects over the summer period. 

This year we have added questions to the application form about pandemic safety.  All projects will be required to adhere to Public Health guidelines and ensure health and safety.  We are seeking a balance between ensuring pro-social activities for youth and pandemic safety.  We have also produced an information sheet with resources to assist you in developing COVID safe programming.

For more information about funding, please visit for the program guidelines and application form. 

Applications must be e-mailed, by Friday, April 23, 2021
