Grants to Organizations

Local organizations can apply for funding from the Town of Kentville through their “Grants for Organizations” Policy (G28). The purpose of this policy is to set consistent guidelines under which each application for funding is brought to Town Council for consideration, by

  • establishing a procedure for the public presentation of requests for funding;
  • establishing a procedure for reviewing requests for funding;
  • establishing criteria for evaluating each application.

Council reviews requests for funding each year from the budget. The Town receives requests up to March 31st 2018 at 12:00 noon. The full policy and forms are available below:
