More than $200,000 in grants awarded to local agencies by Chestermere City Council

Community Grants awarded to local organizations

Fifteen local agencies have been awarded a total of $207,599.19 through Chestermere City Council’s Community Grant Funding Program.

“The program is used to enhance amenities in sports and recreation, arts, culture and history,” says Mayor Chalmers. “We received 25 applications from local organizations and Chestermere City Council made their decision based on the recommendations from the Community Grant Funding Adjudication Committee.”

This new funding program was developed by City Council earlier this year and supports projects that provide a benefit to City of Chestermere residents. These projects are intended to facilitate local activities which engage a broad section of the community.

The spring 2019 grants were awarded to:

7. Chestermere Regional Community Association: $30,725 to upgrade flooring.

8. Chestermere Show and Shine: $3,884.19 for expenses associated with this event.

9. Chestermere Whitecappers Association: $8,000 for fitness classes, new pool cues and other improvements.

10. Crushers Baseball: $10,500 for uniforms, jerseys and safety equipment.

12. Home Hemodialysis Application: $750 to assist with offsetting utility costs.

13. Indus Ringette Association: $4,100 for power skating instruction and ice time rentals.

14. Rocky View Chestermere Agricultural Society: $6,000 for the Chestermere Country Fair.

15. Western Canada Pond Hockey: $10,000 to support to the annual event.

There is approximately $62,000 available funding and a second call for applications is being planned for the fall of 2019. For more information on this program, including guidelines and a copy of the application form, visit
