Municipality of Colchester
Grants of up to $40,000 to Nova Scotia nonprofit community organizations in eligible areas for capital projects involving outdoor recreational facilities for public use. Applicants must contact program staff prior to applying. Eligible projects include playgrounds, parks, multi-purpose courts, playing fields, school sites, and outdoor rinks. Projects must take place in Colchester County.
Projects must be capital projects, i.e., new equipment and facilities, and/or upgrades or replacement of equipment and facilities. Playground equipment and components that fall within the scope of the CSA Standard CAN/CSA-Z614 “Children’s Playspaces and Equipment” must be compliant with the requirements of that Standard.
Priority will be given to projects that are accessible to people with disabilities and that are designed to benefit children and youth.
The Municipality’s role under this program is funding of the capital project. The applicant will be responsible for the purchase, installation and ongoing maintenance of the equipment/facility. The Municipality may, at its discretion, play a greater role in projects located on County-owned land.
