Small Community Grants
Small Community Grants are unconditional grants to local governments to assist them in providing basic services. These grants generally apply to municipalities with populations up to 19,000.
Grant amounts are based on a formula that factors in a base amount, population and assessment values.
One hundred per cent of the funding is intended to be used to support municipal administrative services over the term of the Strategic Community Investment Funds agreement.

The Traffic Fine Revenue Sharing program assists municipalities that directly pay police enforcement costs. The grants come from ticket fines and court-imposed fines on violation tickets. The amount of money a municipality receives is based on its contribution to total municipal policing costs.
One hundred per cent of the funding is intended to defray the cost of local police enforcement in the municipality over the term of the Strategic Community Investment Funds agreement.
