The Town of Bruderheim has funds available to residents and organizations to benefit the quality of life in the town.
The Bruderheim Community Investment Program was set up to help support projects or events put on by residents or organizations.
"It's just an awesome example of how the town can come up with a program and directly meet some of the needs of the not-for-profits in Bruderheim," said mayor Karl Hauch.
In past years, the program wasn't as well used as it is now.
"I think as people have gotten to know the program and hear of the benefits, they've been doing more work towards applying and that's great, I'm glad the town can help with these kinds of programs."
Hauch added, it is a great example of where tax dollars can go to directly benefit the town's residents and help Bruderheim's not-for-profits.
Throughout 2017 the program supported the following.
Bruderheim Minor Sports received $1,600 for new jerseys and Bruderheim Agricultural Society got $960 for picnic tables. Lamont County Family and Community Support Services were given $1,336.03, to help offset the costs of a facilitator and supplies for gym nights and Youth Centre drop in nights at Bruderheim School.
To apply, community-based organizations must be a registered non-profit, registered society or a group or individuals applying to complete a project or host an event.
Non-profit groups must also not receive more that 75 per cent of their annual operating funds from the Town of Bruderheim.
The maximum allocation within the first six months is $5,000.
Deadlines for applications are February 1, May 1, September 1 and December 1.
