Community Service Grants

Grant Purposes


The Municipal District of Bighorn provides grants, to eligible recipients, for various purposes:
  • Initiatives / causes / purposes of a broader scope, that will benefit the Municipal District
  • Organizations sponsoring special activities of benefit to Municipal District residents as a whole
  • Recognized Community Associations / Groups needing funds for recreation, culture, FCSS and facility-related projects

Application Review


Grant applications are reviewed by the Community Services Board (CSB) in September each year. The entire budget is just over $20,000 so grants may be reduced or prioritised by CSB to fit their annual grant budget. Recommendations from the CSB are considered by Council as part of the annual budgeting process, and successful recipients are notified via email soon after the budget is finalised with funds being released in January of the grant year.
