Community Enhancement Grants
Application Guide - 2017
The EnhancePG committee, a Committee of Council, is designed to promote and encourage positive four-season life
styles for Prince George citizens and visitors. This is achieved through community events and celebrations, indoor and
outdoor recreation, lights and decorations, goodwill programs, beautification efforts and landscape projects.
These grants are matching grants of up to $1000. It is often that little bit of “seed money” that can make the difference
in getting an idea off the ground and into action! The projects undertaken as a result of these grants contribute to our
community by fostering civic pride and growing a proud and confident community.
In 2017, there are two Application intake deadlines:
1st Intake Deadline: January 31, 2017
2nd Intake Deadline: October 15, 2017
The Community Enhancement Grant Program offers an opportunity for community groups, non-profit
societies, neighbourhoods and businesses to help enhance our City and provide clean, green and safe
communities through a matching grant program with the City.
Applications will be reviewed on their individual merit based on the financial resources available and
the objectives of the EnhancePG committee.
We welcome applications that focus on one or more of the following categories: community events and
celebrations; indoor and outdoor recreation; lights and decorations; goodwill programs; beautification
efforts; and landscape projects.
Applications that have an element of sustainability are encouraged.
