Evaluation

The Port Moody's Citizen Advisory Group (CAG) will review eligible applications and make a recommendation to Council who will approve all final awards.

The CAG uses the following principles to determine funding allocations:

  • availability of funds budgeted for grants and donations;
  • how you will address a need in the community;
  • which City goals and objectives are met;
  • the promotion of well-being and quality of life of Port Moody residents;
  • the degree to which funding will be used for the community as a whole;
  • applying for other sources of funding;
  • how funds will be used in Port Moody;
  • your organization's needs;
  • benefits to people of all ages and abilities;
  • volunteer involvement; and
  • fostering of community spirit.
