We know it can be a big hurdle to get the resources to bring community ideas and aspirations to life. The City of Spruce Grove offers community grants to make those ideas a reality. Social Planning works within other areas in the City of Spruce Grove to bring grants to the community. As a city, we have often applied for grants that can enhance our work too.
