Community Grant Program

The Community Grant Program provides funds for: 

  • One-time projects and initiatives; or  
  • Operating expenses of organizations in their development stage once per fiscal year for up to three years (within the first five years); or 
  • Events that are primarily designed and delivered for the general public that attract visitors, significantly contribute to the local economy, and promote volunteerism.
