Huron Shores Annual Road Donation Program – UPDATE

slippery road

The Huron Shores Roads Donation Program provides a grant to a Committee of property owners who utilize private or municipally unmaintained roads to access their properties in order to assist with the cost of improvements to the road(s).  The application deadline is the last business day of May each year.  Please visit the Municipal Grants page for details and to download the required application form.

NEW – The reserves (yearend bank balance) should not exceed two times the requested donation for 2020 (threshold). For 2021 and future years the reserves (yearend bank balance) should not exceed the requested donation. By way of an example; if the 2020 donation request is $1,000 the December 31, 2019 bank balance cannot exceed $2,000. Exceeding the thresholds set out may face disqualification for a donation until such time as reserves are depleted below the threshold.
Further, there is no longer a flat starting rate of $500, however, to offset this change a minimum application has been set at $500. The maximum remains unchanged at $3,000.

Also, the application deadline has been shifted one month sooner to prove funding in advance of the summer maintenance season.

The requirements for the Road Donation Program are as follows:

  • An accounting statement for the year is required and must include:
  • The starting reserves (bank balance);
  • A list of expenses;
  • A list of revenue; and
  • The ending reserve (bank balance).
  • The Municipality has a December yearend, so please only report on the revenue and expenses from January to December.
  • A copy of the year-end (December) bank statement confirming the reserve balance on your accounting statement. (Note: I do not require the full year of bank statements when submitting a detailed accounting statement).
  • Copies of the invoices.
  • Identification of the Committee’s contributions (a minimum of $100.00 per Km each year).
  • The Road Donation Application form must be fully completed with two signatures and MUST be submitted on or before April 30 of each year. (Note: new date).
