GrantWatch ID#: 150213

Estimated Size of Grant:

There is no project maximum but note that the overall program budget is limited and there is an expectation that the program not be concentrated on a single project.

Term of Contract:

All 2020 approved projects must be complete by December 31, 2020 and Final Reports submitted by January 31, 2021. The Final Report Template can be found to the right.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible applicants include registered organizations that are not-for-profit, first nations, registered schools, and local government. In general, program funds are for meeting community/public needs rather than private needs. Any private sector proposal that comes forward must be sponsored by an eligible organization and must clearly demonstrate community benefits. If sponsored, the proposal and financial report must be submitted by the eligible organization on behalf of the sponsored group.

An organization with an outstanding or incomplete Project Final Report from a previous year is not eligible to submit a proposal until the outstanding or incomplete Project Financial Report is submitted to the Village of Valemount.

The Columbia Basin Trust Act requires that Trust funding not relieve any level of government of its normal obligations. Program funds should not be used to fund basic infrastructure activities that are normally funded through the government tax base such as roads, sewers, municipal water systems and fire protection. Proposals for small non-profit fire societies or volunteer fire brigades may be considered to be within the spirit of the Program where the fire protection is not provided, primarily funded or operated by government.

For ineligible proposals and costs, see p. 2 of the Application Guidelines in Supporting Documents below.
