Community Grants

City Hall

Grants are available to volunteer, non-profit or charitable organizations to help fund programs, events and initiatives that enhance the overall well-being of the community. Non-profit organizations may also apply on behalf of individuals or teams as long as the intended use of the grant is for recreational activities and the individuals are under 18 years of age.

The deadline for the next community grant intake is 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 1, 2024.


Community Grants are available to:

  • Organizations located in the City of Woodstock with the majority of the participants being residents of the City of Woodstock
  • Individuals or teams who have achieved provincial, federal or international recognition
  • Recreational endeavors for Woodstock youth under 18 years of age

Applications are to be filed and grants are to be distributed by registered non-profit charities, accredited minor sports associations or local governments. You can find full eligibility criteria details in the City's Community Grants Program policy

If you believe you are eligible for a community grant, complete the online application form. Applications are accepted twice per year. The submission deadlines are March 1 and Sept. 1 (or the Monday following if the date does not fall on a business day).
