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.
