Allocation of funding to applications will be based upon community need and the ability of community groups or agencies to respond to that need. It is expected that community groups or agencies will meet established criteria, provide supporting documentation, and show outcomes and results of the funding. In some cases, provincial criteria must also be met.

Event sponsorship will be considered separately from community groups or agencies grants, according to Policy 112 (Corporate Sponsorship).
