Thank you to all of our Applicants!
Thanks to all of our community groups who took the time to submit an application. We received several applications for many deserving programs under the General Funding Stream, but unfortunately there were more requests than funds available in the 2020 Budget. The COVID-19 Pandemic also had an unfortunate impact on some of the applications causing the cancellation of a few programs due to provincial restrictions prohibiting gatherings of over 5 people.
2021 Program – Deadline March 31, 2021
We encourage all applicants and interested community groups to continue to check this web page for the details of the 2021 Program.
Details will be posted by December 31, 2020.
Municipal Community Grant Program
Purpose of the Grant Program
The Community Grant Program attempts to enhance and improve the well-being and quality of life of the citizens of Midland. The financial assistance offered through this program is directed toward not-for-profit community-based organizations as well as individuals providing a wide range of programs and services across the community.
About the Granting Process
Consideration will be given to support initiatives which align with the Town of Midland's Strategic Goals and Objectives. Applicants should also reference the Community Grant Program Policy.
Applicants should be aware that:
The application process is a competitive process.
There are more grant applications received than available funding.
Past funding commitments should not be interpreted as a guarantee that future funding requests will be approved.
Preference is given to new initiatives, but a promising program/service/event/activity may receive in its infancy a grant for more than one year provided there is evidence that the program/service/event/activity is developing successfully and is sustainable in the future without continued program support.
An established program/service/event/activity may receive a grant when it faces a new opportunity for expansion or has encountered unexpected challenges.
In accordance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, all information gathered will be used for the purpose of selection of applications for community grants. The applicant hereby consents to disclosure of information contained in this submission, pursuant to the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, R.S.O. 1990. The application form and information submitted as well as the identity of successful applicants including the community grant level of funding awarded will be available to the public on the Town of Midland's website and through budget reports.
