Neighbourhood Small Grants – Apply by April 30!
Do you have a great idea to bring your community together?
Neighbourhood Small Grants is back for another season! Here are some example grant ideas: cooking classes online or in-person, kids crafting sessions, learn to knit, learn to paint, learn T’ai-Chi, build some garden boxes, back alley clean up, bake cookies or make cards and drop them off for lonely seniors, little free library, weekly book club in the park, make your own homemade cleaning products, let’s make planter baskets together! A cycling or bike repair workshop, how about a dress-up pets parade? Start a new neighbourhood block party tradition, or celebrate Canada Day on your own street. What is your idea?
The grant money can pay for the food, small garden tools, bike repair tools and supplies, knitting or crafting supplies, whatever supplies you need as long as they are not high value items like cameras or barbeques.
Your activity or project must be offered for free, should happen in your neighbourhood and be open to neighbours who wish to join. Businesses cannot apply and you cannot fundraise for other projects or organizations.
Apply by April 30th , receive the funding and you can complete your project anytime before the end of November 2022. If you miss the spring deadline there will be another opportunity in the Fall.
