Community grants

Community grants are a key part of supporting our community. Financial assistance is available to non-profit organizations that render services to the residents of the City of Penticton, and which would be significantly impaired without such assistance.

In accordance with the provisions of section 8(2) of the Community Charter, public notification is hereby given that the application period for the City of Penticton community grants is now open.

The City of Penticton invites all eligible societies to submit applications for assistance in 2016 under its community grants program. The policy on community grants including eligibility criteria and application form is available on the Municipal Grants webpage.

This year, the City is offering an optional workshop for interested grant applicants on Wednesday, Sept. 2 at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall to help answer application questions. This workshop will cover grant expectations, the budget process and how funds are obtained once approval is granted. Applicants are invited to bring questions specific to their organization. The workshop is not mandatory, but will help applicants with questions or those new to the process.

The application deadline is Sept. 25, 2015. All completed application forms must be received before the deadline. Applications should be dropped off/mailed to City Hall care of Chief Financial Officer Colin Fisher or sent by email.
