Community Grants

Annually, Chestermere City Council allocates $270,000 to local organizations through the Community Grant Program. This grant is to support community organizations that facilitate local activities which enhance amenities in sports and recreation, arts, culture, history and projects that promote the social well-being of the residents of Chestermere.

Additionally, the City of Chestermere approved the creation of the Home Hemodialysis Community Grant program to subsidize utility related costs for Chestermere patients completing treatment within their own home. Annually $1,500 of Community Grant funding is dedicated to Home Hemodialysis applications. For more information on Home Hemodialysis Grants please contact our Manager, Community Support Services.

Funding was awarded in Spring 2019 with over $200,000 being allocated. Although Policy 205 indicates one annual call, City Council is committed to allocating the remaining grant dollars within 2019. The next call for applications will be released in September 2019.
