Neighbourhood Grants

Community Funding Opportunities

Great Neighbourhood Grants

Due to the immediate measures the City is taking to flatten the curve of COVID-19, we’ve decided to cancel the spring intake of the My Great Neighbourhood Grants.  We anticipate the fall intake will continue and look forward to reaching out when that is launched.  For now, the Neighbourhoods Team is working on new initiatives to support residents during the COVID-19 crisis and those updates will be communicated in the weeks ahead.    


Strategic Plan Grants

This program was established to provide community funding in support of initiatives that help fulfill Council’s Strategic Plan priorities. Applicants should look to see if their neighbourhood interests are aligned with those in the plan. The application process closed on January 31 in 2019. Find more information on the Strategic Grant webpages.

Festival Investment Grants

The Festival Investment Grant is intended to nurture outdoor festivals and celebrations held within the City of Victoria, facilitate their growth and ensure their continued success. This includes community celebrations run and organized by volunteer non-profit boards with a broad base of support from the local community. Note that block parties, picnics, garden shows, street markets and carnivals are not funded by this program. Grants will cover up to 25% of the event cost. The 2019 intake closes on October 31. Find more information on the Festival Investment Grant webpages.
