- Recreation/Amateur Sport
- Social Services/Community Development
Funding will support capital projects of the following types*:
- Preserve (Capital Maintenance/Rehabilitation)

Grant Award Recipients
In 2011, $708, 520 was awarded to six non-profit groups.
In 2012, $1,317,980 was awarded to eight non-profit organizations
Community non-profit organizations, other public sector service providers and the private sector with eligible partner projects, may apply for up to 25% of their total project costs. Expenses incurred prior to January 1 of the application year will not be considered in determining the award for successful applicants. Multiple year funding will be considered for a period of up to three years. Furthermore, this grant program is not designed to fund projects retroactively or to support funding shortfalls on projects.
The minimum total project cost eligibility under this grant program for Preserve, Enhance and Build New types projects remain at $200,000. While new for 2013, the minimum total project cost eligibility for Project Planning type projects is $50,000.
75% of total project costs become the responsibility of the grant applicant representing a 3:1 funding ratio under this grant program whereby eligible organizations fund 75% of total project costs and the City funds up to 25% of total project costs.
For 2013, a total budget of $1,056,500 has been approved by City Council to support eligible projects in this grant program. Please note that multi year funding commitments in 2013 will tie up a portion of the approved budget, leaving less than $400,000 in available funds for projects in 2013.
