Our Community Grants Program offers 3 community grants, each valued up to $500, for community projects or initiatives that help strengthen and support our local community. Grants are awarded 4 times per year for a total of 12 grants each year. Typically grants are awarded in August, November, February + May.
Community Grants are available to local organizations for community projects, programs or initiatives. Successful applications will include details about the project, its impact on our local community, the process for project completion, and how the grant contribution would fit within the overall budget. Organizations and programs can receive a maximum of one Community Grant per 12-month period. Where applicable, we ask organizations to acknowledge the Kootenay Co‑op’s contribution in their project materials.
