The town of Halton Hills is turning 50 next year, and will be offering thousands of dollars in funding to certain community organizations to commemorate the occasion.

Dubbed “The Halton Hills 50th Anniversary Legacy Project Grant”, the grant will provide eligible community groups up to $2,500 in funding towards projects that relate to the theme of “recognizing the communities of Halton Hills.”

Eligible projects must meet a specific objective, be completed in 2024, and “make a meaningful impact that will endure for years to come,” the Town says.

Community improvements, public art, park or trail related components, signage/plaques, or outdoor furniture/amenities are examples of projects that may receive funding.

The Town says a limited number of grants will be available through the $10,000 fund.

“I am so pleased that we could provide this opportunity to our local community, recognizing the creativity and value volunteers offer the municipality,” said Mayor Ann Lawlor.

“Our non-profit organizations, some of which have been active longer than the Town itself, will, I’m sure, bring delightful ideas to help celebrate 50 years of community.”

Funding applications will open to local, non-profit community organizations and clubs starting on Nov. 6 until Dec. 10.

More details on eligibility criteria and the application process are available at the Town’s website.

This is just one of the initiatives being planned to celebrate the Town’s 50th birthday, with more plans expected to be announced soon.

Halton Hills was formed in 1974 when the province mandated the communities of Esquesing Township, Georgetown, and Acton be amalgamated into one town.
