The Township of Lake of Bays launched a new Community Grant Program today. The new program was developed to replace the Youth Fund and aims to support activities or projects that promote Arts, Culture & Heritage, Community Growth & Development, Environment/Sustainability, Health & Well-being, or Recreation.

Mayor Terry Glover says “For many years, the Township has supported activities for young people through the Youth Fund, but this new program has a broader mandate. Now we can help our community organizations continue the great work they do

The new program has three streams to offer more flexibility and an efficient application process. The Sponsorship stream offers up to $500 for community events or regional special events. For small projects or new ideas with short timelines, the Fast-track stream will support up to $1,000 per project. And for new or larger projects, the Start-up/Growth stream offers up to $5,000.
