In 2020, the City disbursed $1,413,938 in grants and rebates to support community organizations and programs that benefit its residents.
The City's Financial Services Department administers a number of grant programs on behalf of City Council.
The Community Service Grant consists of funds provided by City Council to organizations that are primarily concerned with providing services to various members of the community, including but not limited to the elderly, persons with disabilities, people on low income, or special needs groups.
The 2021 application deadline was Friday, May 14 at 4:30 PM.
The Municipal Service Grant provides grants for property taxes and, in some cases, other specific municipal charges to non-profit charitable and/or recreational organizations that lease municipally owned property.
The Senior Utility Rebate is available to Whitehorse citizens aged 65 or older, or to surviving spouses who meet the program’s criteria.
