Grand River group has cash for work

Appli­cations are now being accepted from community groups and schools for community conser­va­tion Grants given out by the Grand River Conservation Foun­dation.
Each year the foundation awards grants of up to $2,000 to qualified groups (which must be a registered charity) or up to $500 for elementary schools undertaking con­serva­tion projects in communities throughout the Grand River watershed. Eligible projects must be tangible and available for the use or benefit of the entire community.
The deadline for the receipt of grant applications is May 2. The award recipients will be sel­ected this summer with the cheque presentations this fall. A final report may be requested of grant recipients within one year, or upon the successful com­pletion of the project.
Applications can be down­loaded from the foundation section of the GRCA website at or by contacting the foundation in Cambridge at (519) 621-2763 ext. 2271 or by email at­­
