“Every year we’re impressed with the quality and breadth of projects brought forward to us. Thank you to everyone who develops ideas to support our residents, communities and environment,” said Lisa Kilpatrick, Senior Manager, Delivery of Benefits. “We look forward to seeing what results come from this fall’s intake.”
The Social Grants program funds community or regional projects that positively impact social well-being and address priority social issues in communities.
The Environment Grants program funds projects that advance environmental well-being in the areas of ecosystems, climate, water or environmental education.
The Youth Grants program funds projects that directly benefit Basin youth aged 12 to 29 and develop youth leadership, support youth engagement, or enhance employment and entrepreneurial opportunities for youth.
The Trust has residents with expertise in each of the sectors who volunteer on Grant Evaluation Committees with the Trust to evaluate applications, make funding recommendations to Trust staff and provide advice in relation to the programs.
