Red Deer County has grant funding available to non-profit community organizations, agricultural societies, recreation societies or associations and hall boards at least one year old to assist with funding capital projects. The application must be for the maintenance, repair, or enhancement of existing facilities located within Red Deer County.
Due to limited funds and the anticipated large volume of applications, not all requests meeting the established criteria will obtain grant approval, and a grant amount less than that sought by the applicant may be awarded.
The grant will be paid out on Council’s approval. It is expected that County funds be leveraged by community contribution like sweat equity or fundraising, private partnerships and additional municipal/provincial dollars. Community organizations requesting funding for the construction of a new hall or expansion of an existing hall will be required to provide a financial contribution to the costs involved. The County will consider a contribution of up to 25 percent to a maximum of $100,000 of the new build/expansion costs.
Applications must be for projects consistent with the Municipal Government Act, Public Park, and public recreation area, or school authority purpose. Funds received must be for recreation, cultural, or community facilities that are open for the use and enjoyment of all County residents. Grant funding for events or activities will not be considered under this program.
Financial Statements, a complete list of board members, photos in PDF format, and supplier quotations and estimates must be attached to the grant application. Eligible applicants should have status under the Societies Act. Those applicants that do not have status shall indicate so on the application and advise of their intention to register.
Complete written applications for funding are to be forwarded to the Community Services Department prior to September 20th, 2022. Applicants will be notified through written correspondence the status of their application. The County requires a final financial accounting of all expenditures.
