Grant Application Window Open Until December 2nd

Once again the Williams Lake Community Forest is accepting applications for this year’s 2019 Granting Program.

Granting Co-Ordinator for the WLCF Mary Thurow said it was established at the beginning of the Community Forest being set up which is a partnership between the City of Williams Lake and the Williams Lake Indian Band.

“The idea was to reserve a portion of profits and have that available for re-investing back into the community and it’s been set aside so that different community organizations can apply for a variety of purposes and utilize the money back into Williams Lake and surrounding area”.

When asked who can apply for a grant, Thurow said “It has to be an application that is from a local area, so the City of Williams Lake, and the Cariboo Regional District Electoral Areas D, E, and F. We have a map on our website that shows where that is if people are unclear, and it has to be a project that aligns well with the goals of Community Forest.”

They can be picked up at Williams Lake Community Forest on Yorston street or on their website.

Applications will be accepted until 4 pm on December 2nd.

The Williams Lake Community Forest dispersed just over twenty-three thousand dollars in 9 grants last year as well as 6 five hundred dollar bursaries
