Welcome to the Community Initiatives Fund!

Many locally-led community projects and programs are being supported through the Saskatchewan Community Initiatives Fund. Our programs contribute to improved quality of life through grants supporting childhood development, positive life choices, active living, volunteerism, community celebrations and facility upgrades!
