Grants Policy

Grant criteria:

  • Grants should be for projects rather than operational funding, although grants can contribute to some administrative expenses. We don't want to be dependent on grants for funding.
  • Grants must be for projects that help us fulfill our mandate

Grant application process:

  • Projects and grant applications should be developed at other meetings, then brought to a Social Centre meeting for further discussion and approval, if there is time to do this before the grant deadline.
  • If there isn't time to bring grant to a Social Centre meeting, the Collective should be e-mailed about it and asked for suggestions and concerns. If concerns are expressed that need to be discussed in person, we can call a meeting. If there are no unresolved concerns the grant application can go through.
