Community Grant Program Fund

The Municipality of East Hants recognizes the importance and value of not-for-profit community-based organizations. Council’s primary role is an enabling, facilitative one, meant to develop and coordinate supports necessary to encourage vibrant, healthy and active communities.


While it is agreed that flexibility is needed when aiding community groups in an area as diverse as East Hants, the grounding factor in any municipal assistance must be the principles and goals of the Municipality on Recreation Services.


Community Grants are assessed under the following categories:

  • New Recreation Initiatives Grant
  • Recreation Operating Grant
  • Recreation Programming Grant
  • Event Hosting Grant


Deadline: Applications are considered on an “as received” basis.
