Message to Applicants

During the City of Prince George 2023 Grants Review, staff received valuable feedback highlighting the need for administrative changes to streamline and make it easier to apply for city grants. Changes include using more concise language, providing extra information and clarity in how the web page and application form(s) are laid out. There is more work to be done to improve city grants processes, but as a place to start, these changes will hopefully make it easier to navigate information and complete an application.

Please connect with us at if you have any issues navigating these website changes or run into any difficulty with completing your application.
