Community Grants Policy & Application Process 2024-25

Town of Trenton Community Grants Policy & Application Process

Every year the Town receives requests for support from many community groups and causes. Responding to such requests on an ad hoc or “as received” basis may result in unequitable treatment of requests that are received late in the fiscal year or may not allow Council to best prioritize such requests for maximum impact in the community. The Community Grants Policy was put into effect June 12, 2018, to begin for the 2019 fiscal year and beyond.

Community Grant Applications for the 2024-25 fiscal period are now being considered. Applications must be received no later than February 28th, 2024, to be assessed in preparation for the 2024-25 General Operating Budget. Applicants who received funding in 2023-24 and who do not apply for 2024-25 may not be considered for further grant funding.

Although the Town of Trenton cannot fund all applications received, we appreciate the interest of community groups in our program. Consideration of any funding requests received after the approval of the General Operating Budget will be limited to the availability of unallocated funds until such time as they are exhausted.
