RESIDENT DIRECTED GRANTS (ReDi GRANTS)
Resident Directed Grants (ReDi Grants) are a program of Columbia Basin Trust (the Trust), designed and funded by the Trust, and delivered by local governments and First Nations (delivery partners).
Program funds are distributed annually so delivery partners can select and fund projects in accordance with overall guidelines that are established by the Trust. Project selection must include an opportunity for resident input, resulting in community-based funding decisions.
Because of Valemount’s proximity to the Kinbasket reservoir and location at the northern most point of the Columbia Basin we are eligible to offer this program.
