News Release: 2024 Municipal Community Grants

July 3, 2024

2024 Municipal Community Grants awarded to 27 local organizations

Picton, ON –Twenty-seven local organizations will receive funding in 2024 through the Municipal Community Grants Program.

“Year in and year out, many volunteers work tirelessly to make this place we call home a vibrant and exciting community,” Mayor Steve Ferguson says. “We are incredibly proud to support their efforts through the Municipal Community Grants Program. There’s no doubt that investments in these organizations will pay huge dividends throughout 2024.”

The Municipal Community Grants Program supports not-for-profit and community-based organizations to implement activities and initiatives in areas such as arts, culture, heritage, recreation, environment, health and human services. The Municipal Community Grants Program has two streams: grants under $5,000 and grants over $5,000. The County Foundation administers the program on behalf of the municipality.

“The Municipal Community Grants program continues to see an array of projects and services enriching Prince Edward County,” says Dominique Jones, Executive Director of The County Foundation. “This year, we’re proud to highlight the support allocated to vital sectors such as health and arts, representing 35 per cent and 22 per cent of the funding, respectively. Additionally, grants were awarded towards organizations focused on the environment, heritage, recreation, youth and education. We look forward to seeing the impact of these projects and programs.”

Municipal staff are working with The County Foundation to review the Municipal Community Grants Program and policy. Early in 2024, community organizations were invited to answer a survey about their experiences with the current program, the services they provide and the challenges they face.  Continued consultation on proposed program changes will happen over the summer. Recommendations will be brought to Council for consideration in Fall 2024, with implementation of any changes prior to launching the 2025 program.
