Successful applicants will be required to sign an agreement with the Town outlining the terms and conditions for funding, and must provide an acquittal report within three months of the conclusion of the project.

The Town reserves the right to revoke any grant provided if it is used for a purpose which conflicts with the Town’s mission and values or fails to meet the requirements outlined in the Community Funding Policy. Applicants are not guaranteed funding and any grants approved cannot be guaranteed approval in future years.
