Applications must be submitted by this Friday (Nov. 6) for the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce community grants.

A total of $2,500 is available to non-profit, community-based organizations that provide direct programs, services or activities that enhance the life of Abbotsford residents in the area of social services and health, arts, culture, heritage or the environment.

This is the second year for the grant program.

President Josh Bach said the chamber is hoping to attract applications in the range of $500 to $1,000. Organizations do not have to be chamber members to apply.

Applications will be assessed by a panel – made up of board members from the chamber – on merit, economic impact, community impact, ability to meet goals, and recognition.

Complete details and grant applications are available online at or at the chamber office, #207 32900 South Fraser Way.
