Grants & Awards

The SLRD, through Electoral Area Select funds and other sources, awards grant funding to community non-profit organizations operating within the SLRD. Grants are awarded to projects, programs, activities and events throughout the region that represent an appropriate use of tax dollars and enhance the well-being of our residents and communities. 

More information about the use of Electoral Area Select Funds can be found in the SLRD Select Funds Delegation of Authority Bylaw No. 1274-2013.
