Grant Committees

City of Nanaimo Grants

Grants for community services, travel, other grants, security checks, and permissive tax exemptions are provided by City Council on behalf of residents of the City of Nanaimo. Only non-profit organizations are eligible for Civic Grants for these services. Applications for Grants will be received for both new programs and existing services. A portion of the funding for this program is provided by the Regional District of Nanaimo.

Programs and services will be evaluated on the basis of need, appropriateness and demonstrated effectiveness. All grants are for a one-year period (or less). Applicants may be required to appear before the Grants Advisory Committee, the Social Planning Advisory Committee, or the Parks, Recreation, and Culture Commission to answer questions with respect to program services, finances or other issues. The purpose of the City of Nanaimo's grants program is to assist citizens in organizing themselves around community issues and projects.
