We offer a broad range of grants and funding to various community organizations according to the Community Grants policy. (If you are a part of an arts and culture organization, please refer to the Arts and Culture Grant instead.)

Types of Grants

Recurring Grants

During the budget process, Council will determine the community organizations that will be considered for “Recurring Grants”. These organizations often have a long history of providing social service needs to the community and will receive a letter prior to the budget meetings requesting them to complete and submit an application form. This letter will generally be sent out in August or September and the response will be due in October. Council will then determine the amount of funding, if any, to be provided to each organization as a Recurring Grant.

Discretionary Grants

Discretionary Grants are available to all other community organizations that provide a service for residents or attract visitors to Camrose but are not considered for Recurring Grants. The total amount available will be determined during the budget process in the fall. We will generally advertise when we will be accepting Discretionary Grant applications. For 2023, one batch of applications will be due in February and the other batch due in June and the amount, if any, to be granted will be determined in February and July.
