Neighbourhood Small Grants

Do you have a great idea for your neighbourhood? Neighbourhood Small Grants help to build community and strengthen connections locally. 

NSG APPLICATIONS FOR 2020 CLOSED APRIL 15TH. 

PLEASE SEE NEW RESPONSIVE NEIGHBOURHOOD GRANTS (R-NSGs)

Apply for a Neighbourhood Small Grant up to $500 

The Neighbourhood Small Grants program is based on a simple but powerful idea — when people feel a sense of connection and belonging to their neighbourhood, they are more likely to be engaged in activities that make it a better place

When people are active in the life of their neighbourhood, our communities are strengthened from the ground up. The program in Parksville-Qualicum supports neighbours to build community and strengthen connections right where people live.

Neighbourhood Small Grants

During the COVID-19 health crisis, we are open to ALL IDEAS from the community to help. The program will accept more than one application from anyone who is supporting a COVID-19 caused need, whether it be virtual endeavours or neighbour assistance programs. 

Neighbourhood Small Grants are open for applications until April 30th.  

During this Time of Social Isolation – You Aren’t Alone

Feeling connected is vital to our well-being. During this time of social isolation, it could lead to feelings of disconnection, so if you have ideas for staying in touch with your neighbourhood and building community, while keeping yourself and your community safe, please apply for a Neighbourhood Small Grant

Project ideas during this time might include online music lessons or virtual group dance parties, delivering groceries to neighbours, neighbourhood beautification projects, or helping provide meals and warm clothes to the homeless.

Our Vancouver Island community is strong, resilient, and connected. We are known for working together and supporting each other in difficult times. Please take care of yourself. And thank you for taking care of one another!

Apply with the Application to print and send us above, or online through the Vancouver Foundation.
