It’s that time of the year again for community groups and not-for-profit organizations to get creative and apply for a Haldimand County Community Beautification grant.
Each year, the County sets aside $60,000 in partnership funding for beautification projects on municipal property. These grants support the efforts of volunteer groups in enhancing the vitality, sense of pride and overall quality of life within Haldimand 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 project.
Depending upon the number of requests received, 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.
Community and volunteer groups who are interested in applying are encouraged to get in touch with staff to discuss their ideas. After speaking with staff, groups may access the online application package at www.haldimandcounty.ca/community-partnerships/.
Applications — including all supporting materials — must be received online by Monday, October 4, 2021 at 4:00 p.m.
For more information about the Community Beautification Grant program, please contact the county’s Community Partnerships Liaison by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone: 905-318-5932 ext. 6119.
