COVID Relief Grant-In-Aid Program
About the COVID Relief Grant-In-Aid Program
The City of Parksville offered a one-time COVID relief funding initiative to support non-profit groups providing social, cultural and community support services located in Parksville or serving Parksville residents. At the February 17, 2021, meeting, Council unanimously approved funding of $280,000 for the COVID Relief Grant-in-Aid program.
If all of the $280,000 was not allocated, there may be a second intake in the fall. According to the City’s grant-in-aid policy, a select committee reviewed each application and made recommendations to Council as to whether grants should be approved. Submission details are outlined in the policy.
The COVID Relief Grant-in-Aid program is for registered non-profit groups providing social, cultural and community support services. Groups must be located in Parksville or serving Parksville residents.
Non-profit groups may be eligible for reimbursement of COVID related expenses incurred since March 2020. Examples of expenses include:
- Costs to obtain personal protective equipment
- Enhanced cleaning/ sanitization costs
- Costs to adapt programming or services during the COVID-19 pandemic
- COVID related losses in regular revenue due to the inability to hold annual and ongoing fundraising events
- Barriers, installation or modifications to ensure physical distancing and COVID safety.
