Grants of up to $4,000 to Moncton, New Brunswick nonprofits for community programs that enhance the local quality of life. Funding is intended for programs that focus on the areas of healthy lifestyles, environment, beautification, and promoting a vibrant community. Expenses such as staffing, purchase of materials or small equipment, advertising, and professional or consulting services are eligible for funding. Applications from both new groups as well as existing groups who have previously received funding shall be given equal consideration.

All applicants must demonstrate how their programs support at least one of the following objectives identified in the City of Moncton’s Strategic Plan (Note: list subject to change with new Strategic Plan):
-To protect the environment and promote the health of the community
-To promote active healthy living for citizens of all ages
-To make Moncton a safe, clean, healthy and beautiful community
-To foster a vibrant, thriving community

Preference will be given to applicants whose Projects demonstrate innovation and creativity, provide the greatest benefit to the target community, and support the City’s strategic objectives.

Applications from groups providing Essential Community Services, in the City of Moncton’s sole discretion, may be considered without a specific Project to be funded, if the applicant demonstrates that its programming would be jeopardized without the funding being requested. As a condition of funding for any such groups, the City of Moncton may require that a portion of any funding received be used towards the development of new Projects.
