I wanted to make sure all of our community groups and organizations were aware of a funding grant for Community-based events that offer residents an opportunity to come together to and enjoy quality programming and facilities among family and neighbours.
In March, the Manitoba government awarded $323,000 through the Community Celebrations program of the ACSC Fund to 67 community events. Grant applications were evaluated based on project goals, eligibility, feasibility, and community impact.
The $100-million ACSC Fund was established in August 2022 to support arts, culture (heritage, public libraries and ethnocultural organizations) and amateur sports.
Applications for the Community Celebrations program are open until June 15 and the minister noted this latest round of applications will be the final intake for the Community Celebrations program.
