Community Grants & Funding

Each year, the Town of Antigonish provides funding to community groups and organizations with the intent of enabling and encouraging citizen involvement in the community and civic events. The Town administers operating grants and in-kind grants (e.g. to borrow equipment, for use of staff time, or for use of Town services). The grants administration process is managed by our Recreation Department and is dictated by our Community Grants Policy. All final funding decisions are made by Town Council.
