Over 50 local groups are being offered grants in a specific grant program that is aimed at more rural areas!
This "free grant money" was funded by taxpayers in the local rural areas!.
The grants are going to a wide range of community, environmental, cultural and recreational groups. Also being supported are a handful of organizations based in the local municipalities that offer facilities or services used by the rural taxpayers as well.
