MD Introduces Cemetery Grant Funding Policy

The Lesser Slave River region is home to a multitude of active and inactive cemeteries, all of which require ongoing care and maintenance to preserve their solemn beauty and historical significance. Typically, these cemeteries are maintained by our dedicated residents and/or our local not-for-profit groups.

Embracing this community-driven ethos, the MD has introduced a policy that aims to establish a clear framework for the allocation of funds from the MD to these compassionate groups. This financial support is intended to assist with the capital and operational expenses associated with the maintenance of cemeteries and, in turn, foster a culture of volunteerism within the community.

Take a moment to review Policy I11: Cemetery Grant Funding Policy, which outlines its core principles, eligibility criteria, funding opportunities, and the accompanying procedure. The new policy operates on an annual intake basis, with the deadline for applications set on January 31 of each year. MD Council allocated a $10,000 budget for 2024. The Community Assistance Board is responsible for reviewing and funding successful applications.
