Municipally Funded Grants


 

The application deadline for 2021 grants is extended to September 30, 2020.

COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the District’s financial situation. With the indefinite closure of the local casino, the District is no longer receiving gaming revenue that funds the Fee for Service, Community Enhancement and Community Event grant programs. At this time, it remains uncertain as to what funds will be available to allocate towards grants in 2021. As a result, we are extending the intake deadline to September 30, 2020 in the hopes we will have more certainty around our financial situation.

We encourage all applicants to make contingency plans in the event the District’s grant programs are eliminated or significantly reduced for 2021.

The District accepts grant applications from groups engaged in arts, culture, recreation and social services for municipally funded grants.
