Rural Grants-in-Aid

Each year the Sunshine Coast Regional District distributes grants to recreation, educational, social, environmental, arts, and cultural organizations located throughout the region. Organizations use this money for capital improvement projects, recreation and cultural program funding, insurance and special events to name a few. All organizations who receive this funding are non-profit groups that depend on the dedication of volunteers to operate and manage their organizations.

The funding of Rural Grant-in-Aid is provided by the unincorporated areas of Egmont/Pender Harbour (Area A), Halfmoon Bay (Area B), Roberts Creek (Area D), Elphinstone (Area E), and West Howe Sound and Islands (Area F).

All project applications having a measurable benefit to communities outside of the rural areas are required to apply to the appropriate municipal grants-of-assistance programs:

Town of Gibsons

District of Sechelt

Sechelt Indian Government District
