Non-profit groups may ap­ply for fund­ing

The Glengarry News - - Front Page - -- An­gela Brown

North Glen­garry non-profit groups in­ter­ested in ap­ply­ing for the town­ship’s Com­mu­nity Grant Pro­gram fund­ing will need to ap­ply by Oc­to­ber 31 to be con­sid­ered for the 2017 bud­get dis­burse­ments.

Groups ap­ply­ing for fund­ing need to sub­mit their ap­pli­ca­tions start­ing Septem­ber 1, 2016, un­til Oc­to­ber 31, 2016, at 4 p.m.

In the past, the town­ship would ac­cept ap­pli­ca­tions up to De­cem­ber but it changed its dead­line to an ear­lier date so it would have more time to in­clude the fund­ing al­lot­ment in its bud­get for the year ahead and also so the town­ship would be able to con­sider the ap­pli­ca­tions be­fore the busy year-end pe­riod when fewer staff would be avail­able.

The town­ship will be able to ad­vise ap­pli­cants ac­cepted for the fund­ing by De­cem­ber.

The town­ship ac­cepts ap­pli­ca­tions for its Com­mu­nity Grant Pro­gram from non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions and com­mu­nity groups to help with the cost to hold a spe­cific event or project in the lo­cal com­mu­nity. The fund­ing can­not be used to cover op­er­at­ing costs. The town­ship will also pro­vide in-kind sup­port for these spe­cial events, for ex­am­ple by pro­vid­ing staff as sup­port to help set up equip­ment for an event. It may also loan or rent its equip­ment at a re­duced rate.

The town­ship’s Com­mu­nity Grant Pro­gram ap­pli­ca­tions are avail­able at: north­glen­garry.ca/en/town­hall/grants.asp
