The town’s elected officials have passed a resolution to approve funds for 12 community organizations under the semi-annual Kindersley Community Grant program.

Council members approved the grants at a meeting on Oct. 10 and a total of about $7,690 was approved for the 12 recipients in the fall intake. Each year the Town of Kindersley budgets $15,000 for the Community Grant program.

The town accepts applications twice each year, once in the spring and once in the fall. The newest recipients approved at the meeting are from the fall intake of applications. More than $52,000 has been granted to organizations since 2013 when the program was first established, according to an administrative report.

To qualify for the grant, projects and programs must take place within the town’s boundaries and the resulting goods or services must remain in the community upon completion. Programs and projects must benefit or have a positive impact on key sector demographics or the community at large.
