Information Update – 2020 Regional Grant-in-Aid

The PRRD would like to inform all 2020 Regional Grant-in-Aid applicants that at its Special Meeting held on March 19, 2020, the Regional District Board of Directors approved the 2020 budget for Regional Grant-in-Aid.  Subsequent to this, the PRRD Board determined that no grant funding will be released until the Committee of the Whole reviews each application as per the PRRD’s Regional Grant-in-Aid policy. 

Until this process is complete, the status of all 2020 Regional Grant-in-Aid requests remains “pending”.  The Committee of the Whole will review applications at its meeting scheduled for April 23, 2020, and all recommendations from the Committee will go forward to the May 7, 2020, Regional District Board meeting for final consideration.  All applicants will be notified by email by May 15, 2020, of the Regional District Board’s decision.
