Kamloops, BC — April 20, 2022 — The Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) invites non-profit organizations and groups to apply for the Spring 2022 intake of the Regional Grant-in-Aid program.
The program supports projects and events with a broad, regional benefit. It has an annual budget of $20,000, and applications are reviewed by the Board of Directors in the spring and fall each year. Eligible organizations may receive a maximum of two grants during a four-year term of office for TNRD directors, to a maximum of $5,000 per year.
“My previous experience on the other side of the application process, where I used to be an applicant of the TNRD Regional Grant-In-Aid program, gives me an appreciation for the work and effort that goes into creating programming and events that benefit the region as a whole,” said Terri Hadwin, TNRD Grants and Research Assistant.
“It is exceptionally wonderful to be able to assist non-profit groups with their application process, and I am here to answer questions for people who may have inquiries on whether their projects or events may be eligible for this grant.”
The Spring 2022 Regional Grant-in-Aid application deadline is May 1, 2022.
The TNRD also offers Community Grants-in-Aid for the 10 Electoral Areas. These grants are intended to provide community benefit, but are more limited in scope than regional grants. Applications for Community Grants-in-Aid can be made at any time.
