Annual funds will again be available through the Strathcona Regional District's 'Grant In Aid' program. The pot is modest, yet available to community organizations and projects that are of broad community benefit. Please apply by April 5th for summer funds. If you have a compelling case for emergency funds required earlier, please call to discuss. Please find the application form attached.
In the Strathcona Regional District draft budget, the Grant-In-Aid funds have been doubled to $30,000 for the 2010 fiscal year, without an associated tax increase, for three reasons.
1. To be able to respond in part to the SCCA’s financial situation in a much more modest way than the proposed hall tax service.
2. To fund a community-wide fundraising support initiative under the FOCI umbrella. A grant was awarded for $5750 for Sandra Wood to work with all past regional district Grant-In-Aid recipients to find alternate ways of generating funds and sharing resources. This was awarded early to enable applications to be made for the general 2010 spring grant cycle. Further information will be forthcoming from Sandra.
3. To continue to fund the programs of benefit to our community at large.
