The City of Fort St. John is launching a new Downtown Activation Micro-Grant. Funded and supported by the Mayor’s Standing Committee on Economic Recovery, it aims to provide engaging community activities and experiences for residents, visitors, and businesses downtown.

We are excited to be able to support our downtown businesses and non-profit organizations with a grant of up to $1,000 to activate our downtown spaces. These events and experiences will help increase community pride and spirit,” stated Mayor Lori Ackerman.

This program is open to downtown businesses or non-profit organizations with a valid business license and runs until December 31, 2022.
