City of Langley
Grants to Langley, British Columbia nonprofit community-based organizations for projects that enhance the quality of life for local residents. Funding may be requested for specific projects or capital expenditures.

The Community Grant Review Committee will consider the following factors when determining to which organizations it will provide a grant:
(a) The extent to which an application demonstrates that there is need for the Project or Capital Expenditure in the community;
(b) The extent to which the profile and history of the organization and its accomplishments and organization’s goals and objectives are supportive of, or align with the City’s Strategic Directions;
(c) The degree to which the grant will support the enhancement of a positive quality of life for all its Residents;
(d) The extent to which the organization has obtained other sources of funding (e.g. Federal or Provincial Government funding, corporate sponsorships, fundraising campaigns, etc.);
(e) The availability of funds budgeted for grants;
(f) The need(s) of the organization requesting funding;
(g) The degree of demonstrated economic development, environmental stewardship or social benefit that may be generated by the award of a community grant.

A grant awarded to a Langley high school where City of Langley students attend will be limited to $500 for the Dry Grad celebrations.
Approval of the grant by Council in one year does not mean that future Applications by the same organization will be approved.
An organization must meet the following criteria in order to qualify for a grant:
(a) The organization must be nonprofit, a registered society or a neighborhood celebration committee.
(b) The organization must be Community Based.
(c) The organization is providing a service which is not provided for by other groups or organizations within the City or which is provided for in another municipality and is used by Residents.
(d) The organization is willing to provide an evaluation of the use of the grant at the end of the calendar year or the end of the Project or completion of the Capital Expenditure whichever occurs later.
(e) The grant will not be used as “seed” money for a Project or Capital Expenditure but rather to supplement the organization’s existing funding sources.
An organization is not eligible for a grant and the request will be denied if the grant:
(a) Is part of an ongoing Operating Budget (including staffing costs);
(b) Is for retroactive funding or to cover a deficit;
(c) Is to be used for administrative office equipment or office furniture (including office computers).
The organization must submit the application no later than 4:00 PM on the Application Deadline Date, or, if the City Hall is closed on that day, on the next following day on which the City Hall is open.
2018 Community Grant Applications are due on or before December 15, 2017.
An Application received after the Application Deadline but prior to the grant committee meeting will be marked as “late” and will not be considered for funding unless there are still monies available, after the consideration of all other Applications.
