Discretionary Grant Funding

Each year City Council allocates $18,000 to support the community through the distribution of discretionary grants.

The City of Fernie is now accepting applications for Discretionary Grant Funding for the 2020 budget year. Eligible local community groups or organizations that can demonstrate financial need and a positive impact on the community are encouraged to apply for support from the $18,000 fund.

Due to new guidelines recently adopted to formalize the procedure for the award of Discretionary Grants, the application deadline has been extended to December 15, 2019 for the 2020 intake.
