Applications will be evaluated based on the following:

  • Demonstrated need
  • Contributions to the community
  • Promotion of the Municipality's vision, values, and strategic priorities
  • Good financial management and organizational ability
  • Other partners, other sources of funding, support of volunteers.

Forms are available at the Municipal Office located at 21 Trowbridge Street West or on the municipal website at www.meaford.ca/communitygrants.  

The deadline for the spring intake is Monday, April 3, 2017.  The deadline for the second intake is Friday, September 1, 2017.  Applications will be reviewed by staff for consideration and approval by Council in keeping with the policy and approved budget.
