My Great Neighbourhood Grants – Spring Intake Now Open

The My Great Neighbourhood Grant program was created to help residents of Victoria animate public space, develop and enhance a sense of community and leave a positive legacy in our neighbourhoods. 

 The 2018 Spring Intake period is now open.  Please submit your application before April 15, 2018. 

 What qualifies as a good project for this grant program?

  • Projects that are initiated and implemented by local residents.
  • Projects that help animate community spaces.
  • Ideas to create gathering spots or provide activities that bring people together. 
  • Projects that contribute to neighbourhood pride and enhance quality of life.
  • Ideas that promote community development and community programming
  • Could serve as a neighbourhood improvement campaign
  • Can be a pilot project
  • Must be completed within one year upon receiving funding.

The City will fund up to $5,000 to match the equivalent contribution the neighbourhood makes, which can be a combination of volunteer labour, donated services, donated materials and other funds raised. Eligible applications include not-for-profit organizations, schools and community centres. Ad hoc groups of residents are also eligible for the grant but need a sponsor non-profit organization.
