The City of Prince Rupert and SQCRD recently formed a partnership to hire a Grant Writer/Researcher.

The City of Prince Rupert and Regional District of Skeena Queen Charlotte (SQCRD) recently formed a partnership to jointly hire a Grant Writer/Researcher.

The position contracted through the Prince Rupert & Port Edward Economic Development Corporation (PREDC) has hired Blair Mirau for a period of seven months to consult and assist organizations in search of funding support for projects and programs. This free service is meant to offer community organizations with well-developed, ‘shovel-ready’ projects the support to search out and apply for grant funding.

“Shovel-ready” projects are defined as those with work being able to start immediately upon securing funding. Generally this means the project has developed activities to be undertaken, timelines, a detailed budget, evidenced need or demand, and a business plan (if applicable).

Please note the following:

** Types of Projects – proposed projects must relate to economic development or community enhancement and/or must address an identified need or demand within the Skeena Queen Charlotte Regional District region. Eligible activities are extremely broad and flexible and can range from arts initiatives, heritage conservation, service provision, capacity building, marketing campaigns, and more.

** Eligibility – non-profits, registered charitable organizations, cooperative associations, arts organizations, and First Nations groups are all eligible to receive assistance. Individuals are ineligible except for those in search of funding through the Canada or B.C. Arts Councils. Operational or core funding is not eligible.

For more information, or to inquire about grant researching, writing or consulting support – Please email or call Blair Mirau at 250-627-0913 or
