Grants-in-Aid are one-time grants to fund special projects and activities, awarded to community non-profit organizations who deliver projects benefiting electoral areas (Juan de Fuca, Salt Spring Island and Southern Gulf Islands) that are not already funded by requisition.

They are one-time grants awarded to projects or activities which are beyond the scope of CRD services and represent an appropriate use of tax dollars to benefit an electoral area.

Eligibility criteria

  • Grants-in-Aid are intended for non-profit agencies or societies for projects of benefit to the electoral area.
  • Grants-in-Aid are intended for special one-time projects, not ongoing operational funding, although applications for recurring projects can be made.
  • Organizations already being funded directly on an ongoing basis by taxation, or industrial, commercial or business undertaking or private individuals are not eligible for assistance under this program.
  • Grants-in-Aid are not intended for the personal benefit of any individual, proprietor, member or shareholder.
