The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) has handed out $134,575 in grant funding to 28 Whistler non-profits and societies through the 2017 Community Enrichment Program (CEP).

The RMOW says they received a total of 32 applications with requests for more than $240,000. Those who were successful in receiving the grant money include the Sea to Sky Community Services Society’s Whistler Parent-Tot program, Whistler Minor Hockey Association, Whistler Roller Girls Society and Whistler Writers Society.

Applications for 2017 grants rose from last year, but were on par with 2015. The organizations who received grants will have to report to Council on the use of their funds by the end of the year. The CEP is part of ‘Whistler2020’, a sustainability plan of the community’s shared vision and plan for success.
