Grants for the Community

Bowen Island Municipality may make contributions to the general interest and advantage of the Bowen Community through a program of Grants. Over and above the core functions of providing municipal services, the Municipality may assist local not-for-profit organizations that propose, through projects and/or programs, to improve the well being of the Bowen Island Community as a whole. All grants are contingent upon provision being included in the Bowen Island Municipality's annual operating budget.

There are three types of Grant funding established (please refer to the policies for more detailed information):

Grants-in-Aid

  • Typically for amounts up to $2,000
  • Two cycles have been established:
    • Spring Cycle - 2018 Deadline for receipt of application is April 03, 2018
    • Fall Cycle - Deadline for receipt of application is September 30 each year

Community Grants

  • Typically for amounts over $2,000
  • 2018 Deadline for receipt of application is April 03, 2018

Community Organization Multi-Year Core Funding

Some organizations deliver a service that typically would be provided by the municipality in other jurisdictions. These organizations may apply to Bowen Island Municipality for multi-year Core Funding to deliver this community service. Multi year funding will facilitate long term planning of services provided for the benefit of Bowen Island residents and result in efficiencies to the administrative process of providing core grant funding.

The 2018 application deadline is October 15, 2018 (Deadline will be July 31 in 2019)
