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 meet the social service needs of residents of 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 two times a year. The first batch will submit applications in December and the amount, if any, to be granted will be determined in January. The second annual batch of applications will be due in June and the amount, if any, to be granted will be determined in July.
