Love Your Neighbourhood? Apply for a My Great Neighbourhood Grant

Ever thought about how great it would be to have a community tool shed, parklet or community mural on your street? Apply for a My Great Neighbourhoods Grant and put up to $5,000 to work for your community!

The My Great Neighbourhood grants have been introduced to bring neighbours together to create something for their neighbourhood for all to enjoy. Up to $5,000 is available for eligible applications which include, but is not limited to, not-for-profit organizations, schools and community centres.

The City will provide funds to match the equivalent contribution the neighbourhood makes. The matching contribution can be a combination of volunteer labour, donated services, donated materials and supplies and other funds raised.

The My Great Neighbourhood Grant Program has been developed to support strong, connected neighbourhoods by providing funding for projects that bring neighbours together and empower them to shape their community.

The application period is open until midnight, July 24, 2016.
