Municipal Community Grant Program

About the Municipal Community Grant Program

The Municipal Community Grant Program is aimed at improving the well-being and quality of life of the community and its residents through financial assistance to non-profit community based organizations. The funding is based on approved funding by County Council during the annual budget deliberations.

The program is intended for non-profit community based organizations that provide programs and services in the areas of: arts, culture, heritage, recreation, environment, health and human services.  The municipality initiated the program to promote the self-sufficiency of community non-profit groups and programs by encouraging those in receipt of funding to become self-supporting. The grant program is based on alignment with the goals and objectives of the County Corporate Strategic Plan and the Community Development Strategic Plan. 

  • The application process is competitive;
  • There are more grant applications received than there is available funding;
  • Past funding commitments should not be interpreted as a guarantee that future requests will be approved as the focus is on creating self-sufficiency and leveraging of funding.
