The CCRG Program was adopted by Council in 2012. The program ensures that City-owned, board-run community centres can access the much-needed assistance required to complete facility repairs and allow them the ability to set programming priorities.
The program provides up to $965,000 in total annual funding for community centres to access in support of repairs, upgrades, retrofits, safety improvements and renovation projects. Each community centre applicant is eligible for 100 per cent support of project costs to a maximum of $50,000 per project per calendar year.
