The City of Kamloops will soon accept submissions for this year’s intake of social and community development grants.
The grants are awarded to projects deemed a priority in the Kamloops Social Plan or fit within council’s goal of livability initiatives. Up to $30,000 can be provided for operating costs, special projects, capital expenditures or one-year seed money for a social enterprise initiative.
Two virtual information sessions will further explain the grant process and guidelines. Applicants should also demonstrate how their proposal promotes volunteer, strengthens the well-being of Kamloops, addresses social and community issues and concerns, promotes cultural understanding and more. It must occur within the city.
The grant application can be found online at kamloops.ca/grants. The application period opens on Oct. 3 and closes on Nov. 7. Applicants will be notified in late December.
