Funding Application Deadline Nears: CBT Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Programs

Applications are now available for the 2018/2019 Columbia Basin Trust Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Programs.

The Programs are funded by CBT and administered by the RDEK.

“The Programs are open to registered non-profit organizations.  Any private sector proposals must be sponsored by a registered non-profit organization and must clearly demonstrate community benefits”, says RDEK Deputy Corporate Officer Tina Hlushak. “These Programs are intended to be flexible and provide funding to local projects that benefit the communities of the RDEK.”

The funding application deadline is earlier than it has been in past years and is quickly approaching. “We want to make sure anyone wanting to apply is aware of the deadline and makes sure to get their applications in on time as late applications cannot be accepted,” adds Hlushak.

Application forms and proposal guidelines are available at the RDEK’s Cranbrook and Columbia Valley offices and on its website at The application deadline is Monday, January 22, 2018 at 2:00 PM.
