Surrey city council will consider approving $1,178,000 in proposed city grants for 2023 at its regular meeting tonight, Monday Jan. 30.
A corporate report by Kam Grewal, Surrey’s general manager of finance, recommends that 44 grants be approved of 66 city staff received by the Sept. 30, 2022 application deadline, in one-time grants as well as on-going categories involving leases and property taxes, business and tourism, crime prevention and community.
“The on-going annual leases component of the City Grants Program refers to City-owned land
and/or space that is being used by not-for-profit organizations and for which the lease payments
are forgiven annually,” Grewal notes in his report. “The non-profit organizations are required to apply annually for such grants
in-lieu of rent.”
