Eligible Expenses

An organization can only submit one application for a capital project per year through either CFEP or for a capital equipment project Community Initiatives Program (CIP) Project-Based.

A facility can receive funding for one capital project per fiscal year (for example, roof replacement).

However, if an organization shares a facility with other organizations, each organization can submit a grant request for a project that relates to their own leased space.

Projects can include:

  • building a new facility
  • acquiring or purchasing a facility
  • repairs, renovations, updates and expansion

Community facilities include sports, recreational, cultural or other public-use facilities.

Phased projects

Depending on the size and scope of a construction project, organizations may submit applications for stand-alone aspects for the same facility. For example, this could include phases such as a feasibility study, design and blueprint stage, initial construction to lock up stage and completion phase.
