District of Sooke Council announces changes to Community Grants Program

February 15, 2017

At the February 14, 2017, Regular Council meeting, Council approved amendments to District of Sooke Policy 5.1, Community Grants Program Policy. The amended policy aims to streamline and simplify the application and review process for the awarding of Community Grants.

Existing Category A grant recipients will be automatically considered for 2017 funding, without the need to reapply. All other local not-for-profit groups seeking Community Grant funding for 2017 must submit an application by March 15, 2017.

Staff will offer two evening workshops to familiarize applicants with the amended Community Grants policy and the new application process. These workshops will be offered on February 21 & 22, 2017 at 7 pm in Council Chamber.
