RDN to streamline application for grant money

The Regional District of Nanaimo is launching a new streamlined application process for community grants.

The RDN provides community grant funding to assist registered non-profit organizations that are providing social programs and services. The organization must provide a social enrichment service and demonstrate that the service fills a need in the community.

Applications will now be considered once each year to assist community organizations in their budgeting process.

The 2018 Community Grant applications will be accepted until 4 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 1. The Community Grants Committee – composed of three RDN Directors – will meet in the fall to evaluate applications and provide recommendations to the Board.
