The Wood Buffalo Community Foundation (WBCF) is accepting applications for this year’s community grants starting April 1.
Each grant cycle targets various areas based on the needs of the community.
“The WBCF Grants Committee recognizes the community needs continue to be high for mental health, social connections, and programming that can reduce the dependence on social services,” according to Gaylene Weidlich, Executive Director of WBCF in a recent press release.
Target areas for the Community Grants are:
- Mental health and wellness support that encourages social activities and connections to the community
- Programs and projects that reduce dependence on social services within the community.
- Environment Grant: Environmental initiative(s) that focus on environmental education; renewable energy, energy conservation, and/or climate change; land, habitat, and wildlife conservation.
Applications will be open to community groups on the WBCF online portal until May 15.
