The Prince Rupert Port Authority has opened a one month window for community members to submit their proposals for funding for community projects for consideration by the Prince Rupert Port Authority's Community Investment Fund.
And while the chances may be somewhat reduced for local groups to receive the same funding as a recent announcement for 1 million dollars towards Skeena Salmon initiatives delivered, there is funding available for community projects in a number of areas, including culture and environment, youth and education, Health and Wellness, as well as Arts and Recreation to name a few.
The Community Investment Fund was created in 2009 and since that time has provided the funds for a range of programs both in Prince Rupert and in neighbouring communities.
The program looks for those projects which will provide tangible long-term benefits to the community and have broad, demonstrated community support.
Successful programs will be able to leverage other private/public funding and will be environmentally sound in concept.
You can review the full criteria for consideration below:
