City accepting grant applications for non-profit organizations

Posted by Michelle Idzenga on Monday, January 13th, 2020

The City is accepting the first round of grant applications from non-profit organizations until Friday, Jan. 31, 2020.

Council recently updated the grant policy and application form at their Dec. 9, 2019 meeting. Details of the changes made to the policy are outlined in the memo to council, which can be found on the Grant Policy Committee page of the City’s website, www.portcolborne.ca/page/grants_for_non-profits. The complete policy and grant application is also available on the website.

The granting committee distributes approximately $30,000 annually to non-profit organizations, charitable organizations, and service organizations that benefit the citizens of Port Colborne and enhance the quality of life of the community. The funds are from the interest earned annually on the sale of the City’s shares in Port Colborne hydro.

The Grant Policy Committee established in Dec. 2015 when council passed by-law 6317/143/15 and oversees the distribution grants to non-profit organizations. Grant committee members include Mayor William Steele, Councillor Eric Beauregard, Councillor Gary Bruno, Bea Kenny, and Brenda Haymes.

The second due date for applications in 2020 is June 30, 2020, however, organizations can only apply once in a fiscal period.

For more information about the application process and/or grant policy committee, call Nancy Giles, EA to Mayor and CAO at 905-835-2900 ext. 301 or email mayoradmin@portcolborne.ca
