The County of Grande Prairie is accepting applications for cemetery improvement grants.
According to the county’s website, any organization which operates a cemetery within the municipal limits can apply for up to $5,000 in funding. The funds will go to projects aimed at improving the physical facilities on cemetery grounds, including landscaping, fencing, or grave maintenance.
In 2021, 13 cemeteries across the region combined received just under $50,000 for upkeep and repairs. The funds were split between nine community run cemeteries and four church cemeteries. Applications are open until April 1st.
