Registered non-profit groups, registered charities, and Town of Sylvan Lake-based community groups without status may apply for a wide range of capital projects under the new Community Spirit Capital Grant program.
The 2018 Grant program will start taking applications in February.
The application process closes in April and allocation approvals come in May.
