Christmas came early for some Prince Rupert community groups on Monday night, as the City of Prince Rupert outlined its allocation of grant monies to a number of local groups and organizations.
With the economic situation in Prince Rupert still a challenging prospect, the City reduced a number of those grants this year, eventually deciding to provide $1,540,600 in grant allocations, having cut back some $240,000 from the original requests of $1,781,870.
Major grant allocations totalled $1,447,850, while the minor grant allocation totals came in at $92,450.
Despite reductions in some categories this year, a cross section of activities and organizations were still provided with the financial incentive to make plans for the year to come.
