Community Grants & Funding

Each year, the Town of Antigonish provides funding to community groups and organizations with the intent of enabling and encouraging citizen involvement in the community and civic events. The Town administers operating grants and in-kind grants (e.g. to borrow equipment, for use of staff time, or for use of Town services). The grants administration process is managed by our Recreation Department and is dictated by our Community Grants Policy. All final funding decisions are made by Town Council.

How to Apply:

Applications for the 2020-2021 fiscal year are now closed. 

What is the purpose of the Town of Antigonish Grant Program?

The grants support community-based organizations to create a range of community events and services that respond to the changing needs of the Antigonish community. Projects supported through the grant program also advance the goals and actions outlined in the Town of Antigonish Strategic Plan with a focus on social well-being, community pride, community partnerships and sustainability. 

Who can apply?

Applications will be accepted from local, non-profit community-based organizations that have a CRA/Business number and/or are registered with the Registry of Joint Stocks.
