Columbia Basin Trust’s (CBT) Community Initiatives Program—CBT’s oldest program—supports projects identified as priorities within individual communities.
The program is designed to help address the needs of Basin communities like Rossland with flexible and community-based funding decisions to better meet local priorities.
The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary administers this program.
Rossland city council will be evaluating proposals for the program at the committee of the whole meeting on Monday, April 7 at 7 p.m. in city council chambers.
Programs in Rossland will vie for a total of $44,700 in new funding, with $742.22 left unallocated from previous years.
The total grant allocation up for grabs in the region around Rossland will be $315,980.25, including Warfield, Montrose, Fruitvale, Trail, the Beaver Valley and electoral areas A and B.
Proposals are accepted and considered once per year. Proposals must be submitted on the RDKB’s Project Proposal Application form, either typed or neatly printed.
Proposals may be submitted to the RDKB by hand delivery, courier, mail, facsimile or email to:
Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, 202 – 843 Rossland Ave., Trail, V1R 4S8 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org Attention: Sharon Toupin, accounting clerk/CBT liaison.
