Community Development

Home > Community Development

Community Development activities are funded in-part through the province and guided by priorities laid out in our 5-Year Community Plan. Our 5-Year Community Plan is created through a community consultation process and speaks to the community’s priorities.

Community 5-Year Plan

Through an agreement with the Province of Manitoba the BNRC distributes $50,000 annually to community groups within its district boundaries. These grants of up to $5000 each allow us to support groups working on projects that fall under our 5-Year Community Plan. Since its inception in 2003 community grants funding has assisted with hundreds of projects and is responsible for bringing to Brandon some of the most innovative grass roots solutions to community problems available.
