The City of Richmond is inviting non-profit societies to apply for community grants.

Applications for the grants are open until Oct. 28 and fall under four categories: arts and culture; child care; health, social and safety; and parks, recreation and community Events. The grants are an important component of the city’s strategy to build an active and thriving Richmond.

Funding for the grant programs traditionally comes from gaming revenue received from the province’s host local government agreement. Despite COVID-19 impacts and changes in revenue, the city will continue to support the program into 2021 with available funding remaining at 2020 levels without a cost of living increase.

Changes to the grant application process in recent years make it easier for non-profit organizations to apply online, improving safety by reducing the need for person-to-person contact. The online system also enables applicants to revise submissions and retrieve and revise their previous year’s application rather than start fresh each year.
