Community Benefit Grant Program

The goal of the Community Benefit Grant Program, which is funded by Elemental Energy (Brooks Solar II) is to provide eligible organizations financial support for projects, events, or initiatives that improve environmental quality, reduce environmental degradation, or increase community awareness of environmental issues. For 2024, the total grant funding available for all projects is $10,000. Grants may range from $100 and up.

Funding applications may be made for projects within the Brooks Newell Region, which includes the City of Brooks, Town of Bassano, Villages of Duchess and Rosemary, Siksika Nation, and the County of Newell (Bow City, Cassils, Gem, Lake Newell Resort, Millicent, Patricia, Rainer, Rolling Hills, Scandia and Tilley). To qualify for funding, projects, events, or initiatives must comply with the guidelines.
