Information Session: Proposed Changes to Annual Grant Program

The City of Victoria has supported the community through grants for over 40 years, contributing to the quality of life of residents, businesses and visitors.

The City of Victoria is considering changes to the annual grant program. These changes are intended to streamline the process and align the grants with the City’s new strategic objectives and outcomes, providing greater opportunities to maximize annual grant funding. The new strategic plan outlines 13 objectives and was informed by extensive public input. Council has approved grouping grants into three categories: Direct award grants, strategic plan grants, and micro grants for commons and community gardens.

Before implementing changes, City Council would like to hear from past applicants, both those who have received grants, and those who were unsuccessful in the process.  To learn more about the proposed changes, you’re invited to attend a public information session.

What: Information session on proposed changes to Grant Policy
Where: City Hall Ante Chamber, 1 Centennial Square
When: Tuesday, May 12 at 2 p.m.
Who: Anyone interested in City of Victoria grants

A brief presentation of the proposed changes will be made, after which you are invited to ask questions.

After learning more, or if you are unable to attend, we welcome your organization’s input in writing, through email to engage@victoria.ca until 4:30, Tuesday May 19. An updated grant policy, based on the proposed changes, is also attached.
