COVID-19 grants

Council is extending a $250,000 lifeline to not-for-profits in our region that have been impacted by COVID-19.

Groups can apply for up to $2000 to help get back on track after hardships sustained because of COVID-19.

Funds can be used for activities like training volunteers to increase efficiencies, implementing new fundraising measures and even purchasing things like solar panels that help to reduce future running costs.

Applications are open now and close midnight Tuesday, August 31.

Successful applicants will need to provide copies of treasurer’s reports for the last two financial years that demonstrate COVID-19’s impact.
