Community Use of Schools Grant!

The Community Use of Schools Grant Program

This program is designed to provide organizations within the Halifax Regional Municipality with improved access to school facilities and to promote healthy, active living, cultural events and educational programs. Grants will support community groups and organizations that wish to use school facilities for non-traditional physical activities (ex. Cricket, Martial Arts), cultural celebrations and immigrant settling, and educational organizations (Scouts, Girl Guides, etc). This funding may be used to reduce or eliminate the cost of custodial staff and rental fees usually associated with facility leasing. Organizations that may not have been able to rent or lease facilities for financial reasons will now be able to access school facilities easily and without an increased cost to participants and their families. For more information or questions please contact Dustin Ellsworth at
