A few things to keep in mind before applying:

  • Funding requests sent to Recreation Boards are limited to $10,000 max. Requests over $10,000 must be directed to the County of Northern Lights Council.
  • To avoid a delay in a decision on your application, your application must first go directly to the appropriate Recreation Board serving the location of your organization/event. If the Recreation Board denies your request, you may then apply directly to the County of Northern Lights Council.
  • Recreation Boards accept applications on an ongoing basis. However, plan to apply at least 3-4 weeks before the funds are needed.
