Grant applications

We invest in the improvement of the quality of life in our communities.

Grant applications will be accepted through our online grant portal. All applications and corresponding documentation must be submitted electronically through the portal.

Applications will be accepted in February and October. Award notifications will be sent approximately two months after each application period.

Organizations can apply for both a community grant and event sponsorship within the same cycle. An organization is only eligible to receive funding once per calendar year.  (Note: Grant applications in February support activities in the same calendar year, while grant applications in October support activities in the following calendar year.)
