The Central Coast Regional District has a long history of providing grants to organizations within the Regional District boundaries.
In general, the Board supports non-profit, non-partisan and non-denominational applicants. Due to the limited assessment base, the total average annual amount requisitioned by the Regional District cannot exceed approximately $15,000 pursuant to the Local Government Act. Applications for assistance are governed by policy (F-17) enacted by the Regional District Board of Directors. Applications are accepted and considered by the board at the February board meeting each year. The deadline for all applications is February 1st. Payout to grant recipients is undertaken in August.
Grant in Aid recipients are required to complete Appendix "C" Report on Grant In Aid Funding prior to December 30th of the year in which the grant was received.
