Part of the LNTCFS’ mission is to “provide to the Lower North Thompson through sustainable forestry”. Therefore, surplus revenue is disbursed annually to local non-profit organizations. Grant applications are discussed by the Board of Directors before a decision is made.

Grant applications may be submitted at any time although grants decision making is only once a year in January. To apply for a grant, download the form below, and return your completed form to us by mail or fax.
