Changes made to Alberta's Municpal Sponsorship Grants program.

The town of Strathmore supports the new rules for the provincial Municipal Sponshorship Program.

Administrator Dwight Stanford says they should help them with local projects.

"There's a higher basic grant - usually the basic grant's pretty low.  And if you do some unique things you get more grant money."

He adds they're now able to apply for three projects at a time instead of one.

They're going over the books to see which projects will qualify.
