Is funding available for my community group?
Community Grants are designed to encourage community recreation in a manner consistent with the recreation principles, goals and plans of the East Hants Municipal Council. In addition it is to be used to improve the quality and quantity of community recreation opportunities by financially assisting groups with New Recreation & Culture Initiatives, Leadership, Youth Programming and Aquatic/Outdoor Skating Programs.
Community Grants are received and assessed on an “as needed” basis. In addition, it is the policy of council to approve only one community grant per year (April 1st – March 31st) per group.
It is also a policy of Council to encourage community commitment to an initiative by not exceeding community contributions to projects being considered for grant assistance.
