Do you have an idea for a community project, event, or workshop? Apply now for funding to help build a greener, safer, better Carlington. Application deadline is August 31



Who is eligible to apply for the grant?

Anyone is eligible to apply for the CCA Grant. However, only projects that take place within Carlington, or benefit the residents of the community will be considered.

How much funding is available?

In 2018, there is a total of $2,000 available for the grant. Applicants may apply for any amount up to this limit.

Can I apply for more than one project?

Applicants may apply for as many projects as they wish. Multiple small projects may be included in one submission, however, in this case they will be considered together as one single application.

When should I apply?

The grant applications are open from July 1, 2018 to August 31, 2018.

How do I apply?

Applications will be accepted through the online form, by email, or by paper copy delivered to the CCA.

When will the successful proposals be announced?

The applications selected for funding will be announced at the CCA’s fall general meeting on September 12th, 2018.

What happens if my application is successful?

Successful applicants will be required to sign an agreement with the CCA. The agreement will include the expectations and responsibilities of both parties with regards to: reimbursement, project implementation, reporting, and evaluation.

Does my project have to be completed before April 30th, 2019 (CCA year-end)?

Ideally, projects will be implemented within 1 year of the grant being awarded. However, alternative schedules may be considered on a case by case basis.
