Neighbourhood Small Grants offer up to $500 for projects that connect and engage residents, share skills and knowledge, build a sense of ownership and pride, and respect and celebrate diversity.

Greenest City Neighbourhood Small Grants provide up to $500 for residents of Vancouver to develop projects that contribute to the City of Vancouver's Greenest City 2020 Action Plan.

Canada 150 Small Grants offer up to $500 for residents of the lower mainland to support projects that encourage participation in community activities to mark Canada's 150th.

Paper applications are also available in Chinese, Arabic, Farsi, Tagalog, Spanish, Punjabi and Vietnamese on the website or at your local Neighbourhod House.
