City Hall has made a slight change to the Grant in Aid process. In 2019, the Grant in Aid process included sponsorships and City Council had approximately $87,000 set aside to distribute to various groups.
This year, the Grant in Aid fund has been decreased to $50,000 and sponsorships have now been separated into its own fund.
The exact amount of funds available through sponsorship has not yet been set.
“It will be first come first serve for the 2020 season. City Council will decide how much funding will be available and look at each applicant,” said Will George.
As the program will be first come first serve, there is no cut-off date on applications. If there is still money in the fund, applications will be accepted.
The sponsorship funds are available to non-profits and community groups.
