2019 MACG Program

The Town of Caledon's Municipal, Agricultural and Community Grant Program is intended to support organizations with goals and objectives that support the Council Work Plan

  • Is your not-for-profit community organization planning an event or working on a new project in 2019 that will enrich the lives of Caledon residents?
  • Does your organization support activities that serve our community throughout the year?

Deadline

The application deadline for the 2019 grant program has now passed. We will contact those organizations directly who will be receiving funding.

Applications for next year’s grant program will be available in Fall 2019.

Criteria

Priority will be given to groups or organizations that are aligned with the following criteria:

  • That are community-based and fairly represent their own interest and those of the communities which they serve; and
  • That maintain a historical and community link between our agricultural, rural and urban communities.

The amount of funding awarded will be subject to availability within the Town's approved Annual Budget.

Evaluation 

All applications received by the due date will be evaluated by the Municipal, Agricultural and Community Grant Review Committee. The Committee uses a Staff Evaluation Tool to determine if the organization has met the basic eligibility requirements for funding and to score the strength of the application and the funding need. Grant funds will be allocated based on the overall ranking of the application.

Reports

All grant recipients are required to submit a completion report to evaluate the outcomes of the events and identify how the project/event met its goals and objectives.
