Town of Gibsons offering grant program for non-profits

The Town of Gibsons has a Community COVID-19 Grant Program in order to distribute $25,000 to community organizations that provide assistance to vulnerable populations. The funds were intended to offset COVID-related expenses and shortfalls, up to a maximum amount of $1,000 per organization.

In early 2022, Council added $20,000 to the Community COVID-19 Grant Program. Accordingly, the Town is inviting local non-profit organizations to submit applications for this new funding, even if they received a grant under the same program  in 2021.
