Municipal Grants

About the Program

Community Enhancement and Event grants support local organizations and groups dedicated to enhancing the community through arts, culture, recreation, and social services. 

Whether you’re hosting a community event or contributing to the cultural vibrancy of Mission, these grants can provide financial support. Eligibility criteria include demonstrating sound financial management and ensuring that the funding benefits Mission residents. Applications are accepted annually. 

The deadline for submitting applications is September 30th. Enhancement and Event grant applications undergo a thorough review process by the Municipal Grants Select Committee whose recommendations are presented to City Council for consideration and approval at a Regular Council Meeting.

The City of Mission also offers Fee for Service Grants, aimed at assisting local not-for-profit incorporated organizations in delivering essential services to our community.  These grants are intended to support organizations providing vital community services that would typically be provided by the city. Eligible organizations must meet specific criteria, including registration within British Columbia, serving the Mission community, and maintaining liability insurance coverage and demonstrating sound financial management.
