matching fund logoApplications for the city’s Neighbourhood Community Matching Fund are due Friday, April 29.  The fund will provide up to $5,000 to support community projects led by neighbourhood and community groups.

Approved projects will get up to 50% of the funding for the project from the city. The neighbourhood or community group will match this funding with an equal value through any combination of volunteer hours, donated services, donated materials and supplies or other funds raised.

For more information, including the fund’s criteria guidelinesapplication form, and budget worksheet, please visit www.burlington.ca/matchingfund.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
