Eight community groups will share $19,500 in available funds through the City of Port Moody’s Community Grant Program this year. 

The Community Grant Program provides financial assistance to community groups and non-profit organizations that contribute to the general interest and benefit of local residents and businesses. Port Moody’s Citizen Advisory Group (CAG) reviewed 23 eligible applications received by the January 31, 2023 deadline, and made a recommendation to City Council as to which applications should be approved. The CAG is an advisory body made up of more than 250 Port Moody residents who volunteer their time to provide input on City issues. 

Council approved the final awards at a Regular Meeting of Council on April 18, 2023. The eight applicants listed below will receive Community Grant Program funds for 2023:
