More than $200,000 in grants awarded to local agencies by Chestermere City Council

Community Grants awarded to local organizations

Fifteen local agencies have been awarded a total of $207,599.19 through Chestermere City Council’s Community Grant Funding Program.

“The program is used to enhance amenities in sports and recreation, arts, culture and history,” says Mayor Chalmers. “We received 25 applications from local organizations and Chestermere City Council made their decision based on the recommendations from the Community Grant Funding Adjudication Committee.”

This new funding program was developed by City Council earlier this year and supports projects that provide a benefit to City of Chestermere residents. These projects are intended to facilitate local activities which engage a broad section of the community.

The spring 2019 grants were awarded to:

1. Calgary Yacht Club: $20,000 for upgrades to the clubhouse originally built in 1974.

2. Camp Chestermere: $61,440 for replacement of the facility’s HVAC systems.

3. Chestermere Chamber of Commerce: $10,000 for the awards event.

4. Chestermere Community Police Liaison Link: $500 to develop promotional materials.

5. Chestermere Curling Association: $12,800 for reconditioning of the curling rocks.

6. Chestermere Minor Hockey Association: $10,000 for the replacement of nets.

7. Chestermere Regional Community Association: $30,725 to upgrade flooring.

8. Chestermere Show and Shine: $3,884.19 for expenses associated with this event.

9. Chestermere Whitecappers Association: $8,000 for fitness classes, new pool cues and other improvements.

10. Crushers Baseball: $10,500 for uniforms, jerseys and safety equipment.

11. Epic Hoops Basketball Academy: $18,900 for the development of removable indoor court facilities.

12. Home Hemodialysis Application: $750 to assist with offsetting utility costs.

13. Indus Ringette Association: $4,100 for power skating instruction and ice time rentals.

14. Rocky View Chestermere Agricultural Society: $6,000 for the Chestermere Country Fair.

15. Western Canada Pond Hockey: $10,000 to support to the annual event.

There is approximately $62,000 available funding and a second call for applications is being planned for the fall of 2019. For more information on this program, including guidelines and a copy of the application form, visit chestermere.ca/communitygrants.

The Community Grant Funding Adjudication Committee is also looking for three new members who are current Chestermere residents. To apply visit chestermere.ca/committees before October 11.
