2024/2025 Resident Directed Grants Funding Approved

The Regional District of East Kootenay Board of Directors has approved funding for 138 projects around the region over the coming year.

The funding comes from Columbia Basin Trust’s ReDi (Resident Directed) Grants, which are administered by the RDEK.

 “The approved 2024/2025 projects represent over $1.2 million in funding that will support a wide range of unique, valuable and impactful projects across our region,” says RDEK Board Chair Rob Gay. “These funds truly shape the vibrancy of our communities and we are incredibly grateful to the Trust for their continued support of the ReDi Grants program.”

After considering public input and recommendations from the municipalities and Electoral Area Directors, the Board approved the funding at its June Board Meeting. A complete list of the approved projects is available on engage.rdek.bc.ca/redi or by contacting the RDEK.
