Organizations and residents have a little over a month now to get their applications into the City's Community Grant Program.
"The community grant proposals for any organizations, sports, rec, or culture, that are doing events or programs within our community targeting different groups within our community," Steve Hall, the Recreation Program Supervisor for the City's Parks and Rec Program explained. "It can be anything from a music and band choral festival to a regional or provincial sports tournament."
On the City's website, they use these grants to hold events that hopefully encourage the underrepresented populations in our community. Their listed examples include children and teenagers, especially at-risk-youth, those economically disadvantaged, inactive seniors, persons with a disability, single parent families, and women.
Events like the Saskatchewan Festival of Words apply successfully every year to help run things, thanks to funding the City receives through Saskatchewan Lotteries.
All the grant information and guidelines are available online. The quick and easy PDF forms are available but you can call the Parks and Rec Department at (306) 694-4447 if you need the walkthrough.
Deadlines for the community grants are November 30th, and all the forms are available online.
