The Building Sustainable Communities Grant Program to support community development projects application intake deadline is coming up February 28th. Eligible applicants for the Program include non-profit organizations, charitable organizations, municipalities and northern affairs community councils.
The 2021 program intake has been expanded to include support for large scale capital projects including a maximum grant contribution of 50 percent of eligible capital project costs up to 300 thousand dollars. The current maximum grant contribution of 50 percent of eligible project costs up to 75 thousand dollars will continue to apply for all other project categories.
Municipal Relations Minister Derek Johnson states their streamlined grant program is flexible and more responsive to community needs, reduces red tape and enhances the project outcomes.
