The Town of Wainwright offers funding to community groups or organizations providing an event or activity that will encourage positive economic activity in the community.
Grants and sponsorships are awarded based on applications and requests submitted which meet the criteria of promoting local economic activity. The fund is in place for events/activities that will bring economic development opportunities from outside the Town and M.D. boundaries into Wainwright and for the initial start-up of events/activities doing the same. It can also support community organizations providing benefits for Wainwright and area residents. Events that receive funding from other Town Departments may not be considered for this funding. Please note that groups or organizations may only be eligible for funding once per year and established/proven events/activities may qualify for reduced funding.
Please note that funding is limited so please get your applications in early. Funding is dispersed on a first come first serve basis.
You must apply prior to your event. Funds will not be dispersed until your event is complete and a summary report is provided. Please complete the

if you require any further information or have any questions.
