The Municipality of South Dundas and its partners support a number of community initiatives through Community Financial Programs. Below you will find a list of funding opportunities and financial assistance programs that residents can potentially take advantage of for a variety of purposes.
Municipal Grants Programs
Each year, the Municipality of South Dundas recognizes the contributions of the community and volunteer groups within the Municipality and the benefits they provide to residents by offering an opportunity to request financial and in-kind grants and donations from the Municipality.
During the budget process, Council will determine the amount of funding that will be available for all municipal grants, including Community Organization grants/donations, In-Kind Contribution grants, Special Events Grants and Community Events Grants.
The Municipality normally receives more requests for funding than can feasibly be accepted, and therefore applications are reviewed and decisions are made in a fair process designed to distribute funds across the Municipality and provide modest levels of support and assistance to community non-profit organizations.
Below you will find additional details and guidelines for the Municipal Grants Programs available, as well as applications to be completed and returned to the Municipal office.
