New! Community Grant Policy

Created on

New! The Community Grants Policy was amended to reflect a new criteria for Community Grants. The Deputy Clerk / Communications Co-ordinator is hosting a public information session for community groups to review the new criteria on Thursday, December 21, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. Email for a link to participate. 


Pursuant to Section 107 of the Municipal Act, 2001, S.O. 2001, c.25 a municipality may make grants, on such terms as Council considers appropriate, to any person, group, or body within or outside the boundaries of the municipality, for any purpose that Council considers to be in the interests of the municipality.

In 2016, the Township of Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh Council passed a Community Grants Policy which indicates the purpose, eligibility, limitations and application process community groups must follow to receive funding. Community groups are encouraged to read the entirety of the policy before submitting a request for funds.  

The request must be written or typed and submitted via email or on paper to the Deputy Clerk / Communications Co-ordinator of the Township.

Please plan ahead. All requests should be received by January 31 of the year in which the resources are required, for inclusion in Council's annual budget deliberations.
