The Trustees created the grants as a means to assist member curling clubs within Atlantic Canada with capital projects. Expenses that are of a special and/or extraordinary nature will be eligible for funding. In other words, programs and initiatives that are both unusual and occur infrequently; they are not part of the regular, day-to-day operation of the club. Listed below are a few possibilities: The repair, replacement, purchase or construction of a curling facility or part of a curling facility. For example, the repair or replacement of a curling club roof; the repair, replacement or purchase of a plant asset or piece of equipment; the repair or replacement of ice making equipment; the purchase of special curling equipment; the purchase of little rocks for a junior curling program. Exempt from funding are any expenses of an operational nature. For example, membership dues, utility and tax bills do not qualify.
