There are only a few days left to apply for FCC AgriSpirit Fund grants.
The program will see Farm Credit Canada award $1.5 million in funding this year to registered charities and non-profit organizations in rural Canada. Grants range from $5,000 to $25,000 but the application deadline is March 31.
The fund supports projects that enhance the lives of residents or contribute to sustainability in communities. This can include capital expenditures on equipment purchase and installation, energy efficient building improvements and repairs, and purchasing rescue and fire equipment. Since 2004, the fund has awarded $15 million to 1,263 capital projects.
