The Town of Cochrane partners with not-for-profit organizations to assist in building a community of choice for present and future generations.
The purpose of the Cochrane Community Grant program is to provide financial assistance towards projects/events that enhance and enrich the community. Through the program, the Town of Cochrane particularly wishes to encourage initiatives from locally based, registered not-for-profit organizations that will impact a broad cross-section of the community, promote a positive community spirit, and are innovative in nature.
Distribution of Community Grants is at the discretion of Council. There is no appeal opportunity.
Applications can be for up to 50% funding, to a maximum of $2,500 per project/event/capital expenditure.
The project/event or capital expenditure, or the phase of the project/event being applied for, must be completed or purchased within 12 months of funds being distributed.
New applications may be given priority over repeat applications.
