The Purpose of the Grow Your Community Grant: Equipment Stream
The Equipment stream of the Grow Your Community Grant offers south east communities an opportunity to apply for funds to purchase safe and quality equipment for various programs.

*Capital equipment such as a major structural repair of a building, diving board, new boiler, signage at a park or playground equipment is INELIGIBLE!

• Eligible applicants include: an urban or rural municipality, First Nations band or registered non- profit organization
located within the south east district geographic boundary.
• Organizations that have overdue follow-up reports within the lottery-funded system are ineligible.
• The equipment purchased must become the property of the organization.
• Equipment must be purchased after the deadline date of the grant. Successful applicants will not be funded retroactively.
Funding Level
Applicants can apply for up to $1000 per application and may only submit one application per deadline.
Application Process
Applications will be accepted until midnight of the deadline date. Late applications will not be accepted. Applications must be filled out electronically. Applicants will be notified of decision within three (3) weeks of deadline date.

There are three (3) intakes per year:

• March 1 – for projects occurring between April 1 and July 31, 2018
• June 1 – for projects occurring between August 1 and November 30, 2018
• November 1 – for projects occurring between December 1, 2018 and March 31, 2019

*You may only apply for funding for one application per organization/community group per deadline.
Example; the local TOWN library cannot apply twice and receive funding for two of their own programs that they submitted separately in the December 1 deadline. They would only be eligible to receive funding for one.

Assessment Criteria
This grant program is a competitive process and not all applications will be recommended for funding.

Applications are assessed based on the following criteria:

• The equipment being purchased assists to remove barriers to participation.
• A large number of people benefit from the use of the equipment and/or targets a specific group in the community (i.e.
seniors, youth, newcomers) to reduce barriers to participation
• Demonstrates shared use of equipment
• The equipment can be sustained for future years and community need is demonstrated
• The general merit of the application and realistic and responsible usage of resources
• Equipment is required for a NEW or expansion of an existing program (serving a new need/gap)

Note Ineligible Items
Note Ineligible Items:

• Capital equipment, jerseys, apparel and large single user equipment are generally not considered under the program.
• School-based applications for equipment must clearly demonstrate that equipment will be used and accessible to the
broader community.

Grants are made on a one-time basis, with no guarantee of similar funding in any future year.

Funding Obligations
Funds may only be used for eligible expenses outlined in your application. Successful applicants will be required to purchase the equipment and submit a follow-up report within 60 days (or by March 31, whichever comes first), upon approval of application (the program the equipment is to be used for does not need to take place during this timeframe).

Copies of receipts/cleared cheques in the name of the applicant for all expenses is required. Invoices alone will not be accepted and they must be accompanied by cleared cheques.

Stream D: Please ensure you purchased your equipment within the grant time frame and upon approval of the grant. *
