Non-profit groups may apply for funding
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.
