Colwood Grants In Aid Program - Financial Assistance for Community Organizations
The City of Colwood may provide direct financial assistance to community groups and organizations for events and projects that will benefit the citizens and visitors of the municipality, contingent upon provisions being included in the annual operating budget.
Colwood's Mayor and Council recognize that many not-for-profit organizations provide extremely valuable contributions to our community. Each year a portion of the budget is set aside for community support funding, and applications are carefully considered by Council. Grants are available to programs that enhance quality of life for Colwood residents by promoting safety, health, arts, culture, economic diversity or environmental care.
Supports for children and youth, suicide prevention, services for seniors, literacy programs and environmental stewardship are just some of the goals of projects recently funded by the City of Colwood Grants in Aid program.
Applications must be submitted no later than November 15 for the following project year.
