Purpose of Grants Program
To improve the well-being and quality of life of the community and its residents, through financial assistance to non-profit community based organizations which provide programs and services in the arts, culture, heritage, recreation, environment, health, and human services.
To promote the self-sufficiency of community non-profit groups and programs by encouraging those in receipt of funding from this grants program to become self-supporting.
Preference is given to new initiatives but a promising program may receive more than one grant in its early years provided there is evidence that the program is developing successfully. An established program may receive a grant when it faces a new opportunity or an unexpected problem.
