Chestermere Community Grant Funding Program now accepting applications

Community Grant Funding Program

Anyone who is interested in creating some new and innovative community programs or initiatives is now welcome to begin submitting applications to the Chestermere Community Grant Funding Program.

“The program was approved by City Council this year and it will be used to enhance amenities in sports and recreation, arts, culture and history,” says Mayor Chalmers. “We welcome applications for community projects that will enhance the social well-being of the residents of Chestermere.” 

Currently, $270,000 is available for allocation with two types of grants available: Minor (under $20,000) and Major (over $20,000). The projects that receive funding must provide benefit to City of Chestermere residents and facilitate local activities which engage a broad section of the community.

“Eligibility is based on a number of factors including the projects primarily serving Chestermere residents and the need for financial assistance,” says Marla Polachek, Community Services Office Coordinator for the City. “We encourage potential applicants to review the guidelines for additional details.”

Other evaluation criteria include:
·  Alignment with Council’s strategic priorities
·  Community need and support for the project
·  Effectiveness of the project strategy and implementation plan
·  Value demonstrated in the project budget.

Applications will be accepted until Friday, April 26, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. For more information on this program, including guidelines and a copy of the application form, visit chestermere.ca/communitygrants

Funding will be awarded annually in the spring and if grant dollars remain after the spring allocation, a second call for applications may occur in the fall. Funding of the Community Grant program is subject to annual budget approval by Chestermere City Council.
