Grant money is being offered to those working to improve the quality of life in Milton.

The Milton Small Grant Program is geared to provide financial assistance to residents, community groups, and not-for-profit organizations that are trying to achieve the goal through projects, events and programs related to recreation, arts and culture, health and wellness and more.

Successful applicants can receive up to $2,500.

Activities or events must meet the following conditions:

  • Take place in, or directly benefit the Milton community
  • Provide for community building, an opportunity for connection, knowledge sharing, and relationship building
  • Be free for the Milton public to attend, accessible and welcoming
  • Be held on public property, not-for-profit corporation’s/non-profit organization’s operating location or private property rental space

The pool of funds available is $75,000 — an increase of $20,000 over last year — and will be given out to eligible applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. Once all funds are distributed, the application window will close for the year.

“We are committed to supporting community-led projects and events that make a difference in the lives of Milton residents,” said Mayor Gord Krantz. “We hope this program will provide a much-needed boost to local organizations and individuals who are working hard to make our community a better place.”

The grants are operating as a pilot program and are funded through the Milton Community Fund which receives money from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG)’s Mohawk location.
