County of Brant announces opening of 2024 Community Grant Program

County of BrantCounty of Brant announces opening of 2024 Community Grant Program

The County of Brant and the Brant Community Foundation announced the opening of the 2024 County of Brant Community Grant Applications on Tuesday, March 12, 2024.

“We are thrilled to combine the granting expertise of the Brant Community Foundation with the County’s impactful Community Grants Program,” said Anne Marie Peirce, Executive Director for the Brant Community Foundation.

The County of Brant has awarded Community Grants for many years, historically as part of the budget process and more recently through the Community Grants Committee, which has allowed some separation between the budget allocation and the award processes.

At the conclusion of the 2023 Community Grants process, Council approved the creation of a Grants Ad Hoc Committee, to review the Community Grants process in anticipation of the 2024 application window.

On December 19, 2023, Council approved a report from the Grants Ad Hoc Committee which presented a recommendation that the Brant Community Foundation deliver the County of Brant’s Grant program beginning in 2024.

“The Brant Community Foundation’s members have years of experience in reviewing and awarding grants, applying their familiarity with the various community groups and a knowledge of the communities priorities and issues,” said Heather Boyd, General Manager of Corporate Services for the County of Brant. “We believe this will be a great partnership for our Community Grants program and allow us to offer grants to our groups that need it the most.”

All County of Brant Community Grant Awards are done so on the basis of providing a one-time funding for the applicable budget year.

Applications will be accepted for the following:

·         Operating Grants (maximum $5,000)

·         Event Grant (maximum $5,000)

·         Capital Project Grant (maximum $10,000)

Applications will be accepted by e-mail to grants@brantcf.ca until April 3, 2024 at 5:00 pm.  Further information on the Community Grants and Eligibility Guidelines are available at www.brant.ca/grants.
