Residents often know just what is needed to enhance the quality of life in their neighbourhoods. With this in mind, the City of Kelowna has partnered with the Central Okanagan Foundation to offer matching grants of up to $1,000 to support resident-led neighbourhood enhancement ideas or projects that empower neighbours to take action locally.
In working together with other residents, these grants will provide the opportunity for neighbours to build relationships, gain a greater sense of neighbourhood pride, and provide resources to address each neighbourhood's unique interests and needs.
Neighbourhood groups can submit an application at any time. Get creative and make your neighbourhood an even better place to live!
