The Grant Policy reflects the values, vision and needs of the community. Community organizations are vital to the livability and vitality of our community and through the help of the grant program they can deliver essential, creative, and innovative programs, support and services.

Under the Community Grants Program, there are three portfolios under which funds are granted. Applicants will need to choose the portfolio to which they are applying.

The Community Grants Criteria document will help answer any immediate questions or refer to our Frequently Answered Questions.
