Grants of up to $50,000 to Alberta nonprofit organizations and community groups for capital improvements to recreational facilities in eligible communities. The purpose of the program is to ensure that cultural and recreational facilities are available to local residents. Eligible projects are those that benefit the residents of the County of Grande Prairie No. 1.

County Council offers financial assistance to organizations and neighboring municipalities to construct, rehabilitate or expand Facilities within the County and neighboring municipalities.

Eligible Projects:

  • Improvements or repairs to the physical facilities are eligible.

Preference will be given to projects that:

  • Benefit a large number of County residents
  • Provide evidence that there is a large volume of volunteerism, sweat-equity and/or fundraising
  • Demonstrate success in achieving project or program goals
  • Include a well-organized business plan that includes performance measures and long-term operational viability of the facility. 

Preference will be given first to projects that address the safety and operational viability of existing facilities, then to projects that will expand existing facilities without significant operational and maintenance cost increases. New projects will be considered where need is strongly demonstrated.
