The City of Charlottetown is now accepting applications for the 2015 Community Micro-Grant Program. Individuals and community organizations are invited to submit their project idea for funding consideration. Eligible projects must contribute to the goals and actions laid out in the City’s Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP).
"Over the past four years we have been able to support over twenty community-based projects, which not only contribute to our collective sustainability goals, but also enhance the vibrancy and resilience of our City," says Mayor Clifford Lee. "We have an abundance of creative and talented individuals and community groups in Charlottetown, the impact that we can have in the community by supporting their ideas is far beyond what we can accomplish on our own."
The Community Micro-Grant fund has been increased in 2015 to allow support for more projects under the four pillars of sustainability – environmental, social, economic and cultural. It also demonstrates a renewed commitment to sustainability by City Council.
"While the individual grant amounts will not change, there has been an increase in the overall funding available for projects," says Councillor Bob Doiron, Chair of the Environment and Sustainability Committee. "We hope to see an increase in the number of quality applications this year and be able to support more of this important work. We’re excited to see the ideas that people come up with."
Interested applications can find information on the funding guidelines, a description of previous years’ successful projects and the application form by clicking on the Micro-Grant button on the City’s homepage at www.charlottetown.ca
Applications and all supporting documents must be received by 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, April 22, 2015.
