The Town of Innisfail recently announced the recipients of a number of the grants available to the community. On Tuesday, April 5, Mayor Jean Barclay was honoured to present each recipient with their grant funds.

Innisfail Community Grants are available to local organizations accessing funding for recreation, culture or sport programs/events. Eligible programs must be related to arts & culture, parks & environment, and recreation, sport & leisure.

The Henday Association for Lifelong Learning/ Welcoming & Inclusive Communities Committee received $2,500 for their Community Mural Project. Accepting the cheque on behalf of the project organizers were Tasha Busch and Heidi Nelson.

Funded by a contribution from the Innisfail Solar Corporation/Elemental Energy, the Community Benefit Grant is available to groups such as charities, not-for-profit societies, organizations/associations, and schools for projects, events or initiatives related to environmental awareness & enhancement, social & community welfare, and arts & culture.
