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 or capital expenditures 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.
