The City of Wetaskiwin is now accepting applications for its community grant funding program for spring 2024.

Kristen Hewlett, City of Wetaskiwin communication manager, said the city has close to $20,000 in funding that can be applied for this year.

Another round of the program will take place in October.

The deadline to apply for this intake is April 1.

The funding opportunities are available to community organizations to fund operating and one-time initiatives, as well as projects that enhance community safety, and events that are primarily designed and delivered to the general population that attract visitors, significantly contribute to the local economy, promote volunteerism and value added to Wetaskiwin.

How many organizations are selected to receive the grant will be determined by how many eligible organizations apply.

In total, the city provided 15 groups with over $35,000 in grants in 2023, Hewlett noted.
