Richmond non-profit societies can now apply for the city’s annual community grant program.
Every year, grants are given to non-profit societies aiming to improve the quality of life for the city’s residents in four areas.
Applications must be within the following categories:
- Arts and culture
- Child care
- Health, social and safety
- Parks, recreation and community events
Funding for grants come from the gaming revenue received through the Province of B.C.’s Host Local Government agreement.
Applications will be accepted online to reduce person-to-person contact.
Those who have submitted applications before can access their previous year’s applications through the online system.
“The City of Richmond supports a quality of life for all its residents,” says the city in a media release.
“City council recognizes that one way of helping to achieve this goal is through annual grant programs that support the work of not-for-profit, community service organizations.”
Deadline for applications is on Wednesday, Oct. 28.
