Community Forest extends grant application deadline

It was a bad case of miscommunication about the amount of money available

You shouldn’t listen to rumors.

Even though Wells Gray Community Forest (2010) Society advertised in August that it was accepting grant applications for $50,000 in available funding, a number of local organizations did not apply because their members had heard there actually was no money available.

“It was a bad case of miscommunication about the amount of money available,” said Richard Christensen, the society’s chair.

Because of the number of organizations involved, the society has decided to extend the deadline from Oct. 1 to Nov. 6, he said.

Those societies or organizations that have already applied do not need to reapply.

 

Those interested in applying should Google the Wells Gray Community Forest’s home page to download the application form.
