This fall $63,000 of funding is available. My Great Neighbourhood Grants were developed to support strong, connected neighbourhoods through funding for projects and activities that would empower them to shape their local area.

The City provides up to $5,000 for placemaking projects and up to $1,000 for activities, matching equivalent contributions (including volunteer time and in-kind donations) from applicants.

Projects that have recently been funded include road murals, a children’s garden and playspace, furniture for a community garden, emergency supply benches, pollinator gardens and historical plaques.

Since 2016, $265,981 in My Great Neighbourhood Grant funding has been distributed to 79 community-based projects.
