City of Powell River established the community forest reserve fund (bylaw 2012/08) to receive dividend deposits from Powell River Community Forest. Monies received will be used for special community projects that will benefit the community as a whole. Before deciding on use of the fund, the city will seek input from PRCF.

We welcome new grant applications and updates to existing applications at any time. Our rolling application list is updated and reviewed on an ongoing basis with city staff.  More information on the process to apply and our evaluation criteria can be found here. Applications may be submitted at any time by mail or sent electronically to both. Successful applicants receive the grant in two payments from the City; 70% is paid upon signing the Community Forest Grant funding servicing agreement with the city and the final 30% payment upon completion of the project and submission of records of project expenditures. Monies not required to complete the intended scope of the project remain in the community forest reserve fund for other community grants.
