Community Enhancement Grants      

Application Guide - 2017

The EnhancePG committee, a Committee of Council, is designed to promote and encourage positive four-season life

styles for Prince George citizens and visitors. This is achieved through community events and celebrations, indoor and

outdoor recreation, lights and decorations, goodwill programs, beautification efforts and landscape projects.

 

These grants are matching grants of up to $1000. It is often that little bit of “seed money” that can make the difference

in getting an idea off the ground and into action! The projects undertaken as a result of these grants contribute to our

community by fostering civic pride and growing a proud and confident community.

In 2017, there are two Application intake deadlines:

1st Intake Deadline: January 31, 2017

2nd Intake Deadline: October 15, 2017
