Community grant allocations announced for 2011

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.
