Applications from registered charities and non-profit organizations in rural Canada for the Farm Credit Canada’s AgriSpirit Fund are being accepted until March 29.
The fund provides grants of $5,000 to $25,000 for community improvement initiatives, such as capital expenditures on equipment purchase and installation; energy-efficient building improvements; and repairs and purchasing of rescue and fire equipment.
Since the fund’s creation in 2004, it has given $13.5 million to nearly 1,200 capital projects. Last year, 17 community groups in Alberta received funding.
