Each year, Haldimand County sets aside $60,000 in partnership funding for beautification projects on municipal property. These community beautification grants support the efforts of volunteer groups in enhancing the vitality, sense of pride and overall quality of life within the County.
Groups may apply for grant funding of up to 50% of the total cost of the proposed project to a maximum of $4,000 per year per organization.
Depending upon the number of requests received and the demand for funding, the County may be able to fund more than one application per community group. Proposed projects must take place on property owned by Haldimand County. Organizations submitting more than one application are asked to rank their requests in priority order.
Since being launched in 2006, the Community Beautification Program has resulted in County grant funding of $850,000 leveraging almost $2 million in community contributions to complete more than 260 projects.
Community/volunteer groups may access the application package online at https://www.haldimandcounty.ca/community-partnerships/.
Applications — including all supporting materials — must be received by Monday, October 19, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. by mail or in person to the Haldimand County Administration Building (53 Thorburn Street South, Cayuga, ON N0A 1E0).
All submissions are assessed relative to the total Community Beautification budget as well as equitability throughout the County.
