Neighbourhood Small Grants: Make Great Things Happen!
How would you like to make your neighbourhood a better place?
Do you live in the Cedar Cottage, Frog Hollow or Kiwassa neighbourhoods? Do you have great ideas to improve your neighbourhood or bring people together, but need a little support to help make them happen?
Then you might want to consider applying for a Neighbourhood Small Grant!
The Neighbourhood Small Grants Project is funded by the Vancouver Foundation to support residents to initiate activities in their communities for the benefit of local people. Groups of two or more neighbours can apply for a grant of $50 to $500 to work together on small projects that benefit their neighbourhoods socially, physically, culturally or environmentally.
All kinds of projects can receive funding. For example, you could paint a mural, plant a neighbourhood garden, teach a cooking or art class, put up a community bulletin board, celebrate a cultural holiday, put on a music recital, hold a dialogue or talking circle, organize a community clean up, write a neighbourhood cookbook or have a block party!
The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2011. Decisions will be made by April 30th.
