Neighbourhood grant

Residents often know just what is needed to enhance the quality of life in their neighbourhoods. With this in mind, we have 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.

NEW for 2017 projects: up to $500 in additional matching funds are available for projects that support Canada 150 themes . See Neighbourhood Grant Guidelines for more details. Note: Due to a high volume of requests, we are no longer accepting neighbourhood grants or event applications for Canada Day events.

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!
