Community Grants

The Online Application Process is Now Closed. The process will open again in December for 2017 Community Grants.


An online application process for Project Grants and Investment Grants was implemented in 2011.

Please refer to the 2016 Community Grants Information & Guidelines. Funding is only for not-for-profit organizations conducting activities within the City of Peterborough. Applications are now available.

PLEASE NOTE: In 2015, Council approved that "In Kind" Contribution can no longer be used as matching funds in the Project Grants Budget Form. You may still populate the Value of In Kind Contributions field, but the amount will not be considered part of the total matching funds.

The deadline for applications to be received at City Hall was Friday, February 5, 2016 at 3:00 pm.

  • The electronic application form must be used.  The submit button must be pushed once the application is completed.  After you have pushed the submit button you will be given an opportunity to print your application.
  • The completed application must be printed off and signed, then dropped off or mailed to City Hall, along with eight (8) photocopies before the deadline.  (You must submit a total of 9 copies of the application - 1 signed original plus 8 copies of the signed original.)
  • Nine (9) copies of the most recent financial statement available must also be provided. This applies to Project Grant applicants as well as Investment Grant applicants.
