Peace Arch Hospital Foundation Projects: Rapid Response Grant

Rapid Response Grant

The Rapid Response Grant (RRG) program has been created to respond to the ever-changing needs of the White Rock-South Surrey community during times of uncertainty or crisis, providing quick financial assistance to those working diligently to aid our community.

This grant is available to support local non-profit organizations, Peace Arch Hospital staff, and Fraser Health employees working in the White Rock-South Surrey (WR/SS) area and provides urgently needed funding to support programs, services, and activities to assist in alleviating effects of events causing large scale community impact, natural disasters, and pandemics such as COVID-19.

Applications are accepted and reviewed as received on an on-going basis.
