There is a program available to community groups in the southeast who need extra funding.
"The Community Grant Program provides financial support for sports teams, art, in order to bring different programs into our facilities," explains Erin Wilson, Program Manager with the City of Estevan. "It provides support for sports, culture and recreation activities."
"We've had hockey groups apply for it, we've had arts, museums apply for it, we've had the swimming programs apply for it, the Mermaids, water polo. It's a well used program here but without it, there's a lot of organizations that would be struggling. That's what the funding is for. It's through the Saskatchewan Lotteries Fund and people should take advantage of this to create a stronger program."
"This year the deadline is September 29th at 4 pm. And then in the spring, when we do it again, it's always the last Friday in April."
Forms are available online or at City Hall.
"Pauline would be happy to help, she's quite an expert with this."
