Municipal officials say applications are now available for the 2019 round of the Community Partnership Fund (CPF).
Council allocates funds each year for distribution to community groups through the competitive CPF process.
Groups that have projects in mind for 2019 are invited to apply for funding of up to 50 per cent of project costs, to a maximum of $10,000 per project for community projects and a maximum of $5,000 per project under the festival and events component.
The deadline for applications for this round of funding is April 12 at 4:30 p.m.
Grant guidelines are available at all municipal centres, information desks and public libraries throughout Chatham-Kent, and will also be available online at www.chatham-kent.ca under the Residents heading. (Choose the “Community Funding” link, and then click on “Community Partnership Fund.”)
This year marks the first year that all applications are to be submitted online. Those needing access to a computer may visit any municipal library branch and use one of their computers.
A committee composed of citizens and representatives from various municipal departments will review all applications.
