Rossland council cracks open grant-in-aid policy in town hall meeting

A public meeting on the draft community funding application form and the grant-in-aid policy is being held this week.

A town hall meeting to discuss and receive input on the draft community funding application form and procedure for the grant-in-aid policy is being held early next week.

City council is asking all individuals, service clubs, non-profit societies, groups and charitable organizations to attend the meeting to discuss and give input on the draft form and procedure, as well as the accompanying Policy.

Two opportunities to participate will be held at City Hall:

• Monday, Dec. 2 from 7-9 p.m.

• Tuesday, Dec. 3 from 2–5 p.m.

The Community Funding application form deadline is Oct. 31.

Eligible groups are service clubs, groups, non-profit societies or charitable organizations. The applicant must be able to demonstrate how the grant will assist the applicant in meeting the goals and objectives of the city.

There are two categories of funding: Category A requests (grant funding exceeding $25,000) will be required to make a presentation to council prior to funding being approved; Category B requests (grant funding in amounts less than $25,000) are invited to make a presentation to council in support of the request, if time permits.

All applicants are be required to enter into a service agreement, drafted by the city. •

Requests or proposals will be rejected that apply to prior years’ operations or capital deficits; are received from applicants having received past funds that have not submitted an annual report, project completion report or requested documentation from the city.
