City seeking myPG community grant applications

Recipients of city grants during the 2019 grant presentation event in Council Chambers (pictured) included the Carney Hill Neighbourhood Centre, the Canadian Mental Health Association, and the Prince George Red Dress Society.

The City of Prince George is seeking applications for a grant that helps creative residents and organizations initiate or sustain great ideas, events, and projects. The myPG Community Grant assists non-profit groups and other community organizations to develop and implement innovative activities, projects, and events that contribute to making Prince George a great community. The application deadline for this grant is October 15, 2020.

Note: for the Fall 2020 myPG Community Grant intake, organizations and individuals are encouraged to propose innovative approaches to program and service delivery that reflect the current COVID-19 operating environment. In particular, the adjudication committee will be considering the degree to which applicants are responding to emerging service needs, and/or adapting the delivery of an existing program to ensure compliance with public health orders.

Eligible initiatives can be large or small (grants typically range from $2500 to $8000, but can be as small as $900), and activities/projects should be accessible to residents of all backgrounds, ethnicities, and income levels. Applications will be evaluated based on alignment with the following criteria:

  • Increasing community pride
  • Encouraging a safe community
  • Providing social connections for citizens
  • Encouraging physical activity
  • Providing opportunities for involvement in arts and culture 
  • Ensuring equity and inclusion

Further information about these grants, including how to apply, can be found on the City website or by e-mailing communityrecreation@princegeorge.ca
