The 2016 City Enrichment Fund online intake period is now open for applications (September 1st) and will close on November 2, 2015. The City of Hamilton’s City Enrichment Fund provides grants to community organizations whose services benefit Hamilton residents.

City of Hamilton staff in the Recreation Division would like to invite you to an information session on the updated 2016 City Enrichment Fund. Last year was the first year of the City Enrichment Program, and as we enter the second year of the revamped program we have more great changes that your organization may benefit.

The focus of the information session will be a presentation on the Sport & Active Lifestyles program.  We will provide information about the seven streams within our program, how your organization could benefit from this opportunity, and some key pointers when filling out the online application.

Two sessions are being provided, please choose one. If you cannot attend either, please connect with Gordon to meet during your availability.
