Community Grant Applications Now Open

Meaford, Ontario – January 29, 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 are established in the spring and fall. Four grant categories exist including civic events (such as Canada Day), festivals and fairs, community one-time projects, and community programs (limited to 20% of administrative costs).

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 http://www.meaford.ca/communitygrants.

The deadline for the spring intake is Friday, April 1, 2016.  The deadline for the second intake is Thursday, September 1, 2016.  Applications will be reviewed by staff for consideration and approval by Council in keeping with the policy and approved budget.

    We have recently had some instance of garbage bag tags being ripped in half, and both halves being placed on two separate garbage bags. Garbage will only be collected if a complete bag tag is present on all waste bags, and by-law enforcement will be contacted if necessary.
