Community Grants

Community Grants

The Regional District of Nanaimo provides community grant funding in order to assist registered non-profit organizations to provide social programs and services that serve a local community or provide a regional benefit.

The organization must provide a social enrichment service and demonstrate that the service fills a need in the community. It is the desire of the Regional District that organizations strive for financial independence, therefore financial need must be demonstrated and an application must be submitted in the form approved. Continuing support should not be anticipated.

The Community Grants Committee is composed of three RDN directors from the RDN Board who meet one time per year, in the Spring, to evaluate applications and provide recommendations to the RDN Board.
