Application Timing & Process:  Please be advised that due to the number of subsidy applications, the review and approval process takes 3 – 4 weeks from time of submission to process your application. We advise you apply well in advance (minimum 4 weeks) before the registration start date of the service(s) you wish to participate in. You will then be contacted by a Town Employee by either email (or phone if email is not an option) advising you of your application status. Please note that approved funding is not retroactive and therefore cannot be applied or used towards previous registrations made prior to your funding approval.
