Recreation Grant Funding: North Saskatchewan and Raven Recreation Areas
Clearwater County also provides support for local community hall groups in the form of insurance payment support and capital and operational grant funding. Recreational organizations and groups that fall within the boundaries of the North Saskatchewan and Raven Recreation Areas are eligible for assistance with funding for small projects and programming.
For the purposes of this fund, recreation shall refer to those projects that give opportunity to people of all ages to take part in healthy and beneficial activities. Examples of qualifying projects would be shale for ball diamonds, boards for ice rinks, updates to playground equipment, etc. Funds may also be put towards a larger recreational project that has had the majority of funds raised through other sources. Operational or maintenance costs are not covered by these grants.

Clearwater County's Community Hall Grant Funding provides annual grants to community halls in Clearwater County to allow them to remain sustainable and active in their community. Community Hall Associations will be given the responsibility to allocate funds according to their individual needs and apply elsewhere for funds that are required above and beyond the County's annual allocation.
