Community Grants – 2nd Intake

Meaford, Ontario – August 16, 2016 – In October 2015, Council of the Municipality of Meaford approved a new Community Grants Program and Policy. The 2016 tax-supported budget includes $50,000 to support community partners providing programs, services, and events to the residents and visitors of the Municipality of Meaford. This recognition and financial support enables these groups to leverage other funding and support volunteer contributions.

Two intakes were established in the spring and fall.  Grant categories include civic events, festivals and fairs, community one-time projects, and on-going or new community programs.

Applications will be evaluated based on the following:

  • Demonstrated need
  • Contributions to the community
  • Promotion of the Municipality's vision, values, and strategic priorities
  • Good financial management and organizational ability
  • Other partners, other sources of funding, support of volunteers.

Forms are available at the Municipal Office located at 21 Trowbridge Street West or on the municipal website at www.meaford.ca/communitygrants.

The deadline for the fall intake is Thursday, September 1, 2016.  Over $16,000 remains available for 2016 allocations.  Applications will be reviewed by staff for consideration and approval by Council in keeping with the policy and approved budget.

    Does this window look familiar? This circa 1800's stained glass window featuring Sir John A MacDonald has been donated to the Meaford Museum, but with no history of where it came from or how it ended up here in Meaford. If you have any information on this Mystery Window, please get in touch with the Meaford Museum at 519-538-5974 or jsimon@meaford.ca.
