New Application Process for Community Grants

The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) 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 4:00 pm on Friday, September 1, 2017. The Community Grants Committee - composed of three RDN Directors - will meet in the fall to evaluate applications and provide recommendations to the Board.
