Grants ranging from $500 to $2,000 to Southern Saskatchewan registered charities and qualified donees for projects benefiting local communities. Funding is intended for projects that have a positive community impact that enhances and promotes healthy, vibrant, and caring communities.

The purpose of the Smart & Caring Fund is to allow the SSCF to respond to areas of focus identified in its annual Vital Signs Report.

Grants are intended to support projects rather than ongoing programs.

Grants are made to organizations with the capacity to successfully complete the project, with a realistic project plan, and with a sound financial plan as demonstrated by the application.
