The purpose of the Lanark County Community Grants Program is to responsibly distribute County funds to support non-profit agencies and organizations who serve Lanark County. Grants are awarded to local projects that have a direct impact on the people of our community or an indirect impact by increasing the capacity of organizations to initiate and sustain local projects.
