These grants are for non-profit community, recreational, sporting, cultural, educational, and social organizations that provide benefits to the residents and communities within the Municipality. Only those organizations that demonstrate financial need are considered for assistance.
At this time, the Municipality does not offer any grants to individuals.
If you are considering submitting a grant application for this fiscal year (April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021), PLEASE wait to do so as that the funds budgeted by the previous Council are now depleted and it will probably be December 2020, or possibly January 2021, before the new Council will have a chance to consider reallocating other funds to respond to new grant applications. Please check back here at that time for updates.
*This is not to be confused with the 2021-22 fiscal year grant applications that will be submitted prior to the March 31, 2021 deadline and that will be reviewed in the spring of 2021. The note above pertains to applications for the remainder current fiscal year only. Should the new Council decide to not replenish funds for this fiscal year, it will be indicated on this website and staff will recommend that you apply for the 2021-22 fiscal year instead.
Requests above $3,000: Deadline is March 31st.
Requests below $3,000: Apply anytime – earlier is better as funding is dependent on budget
GRANT APPLICATION FORMATS:
Final Project Report Form
For accountability purposes, all recipients of grants from the Municipality of Cumberland are required to provide accurate financial documents demonstrating how their grant money was spent from the previous year, and to demonstrate that the project (activity, facility, or event) approved by Council was actually carried out as described in the application. For your convenience, we have provided a “Final Project Financial Report Form” below (as referred to in the application guidelines under “Payment of Grants”). If desired, a final report other than this one can be submitted, provided that it contains all the information requested in the Form.
Final Project Report Forms should be submitted along with (or ahead of) grant applications being submitted for the 2019-20 fiscal year. Deadline March 31
**NOTE: For those not applying for funding in the 2019-2020 fiscal year, please be aware that a Final Project Report Form will be required before any future funding.
The following documents show a full listing of grants provided to organizations by the Municipality of Cumberland for the corresponding fiscal year:
Annual Funding Program
Please note that due to financial constraints that the Municipality of Cumberland experienced this year and anticipates in the coming year, the “Annual Funding Program” is no longer an option for 2019/20, regardless of whether your organization has applied for it in the past.
However, all applicants can still apply by completing the regular grant application. Each application will be evaluated on an individual basis. To ease the process, we have recently revised the regular application to be clearer and more user-friendly. The application form is available on this website and can be submitted by email or in hard copy.
