Project Ideas to Get You Started

We find these tend to be popular ideas among first-time applicants. They can be easily organized with two people, are low cost, and excite neighbours.

Share Skill

Teach others how to craft, build, or speak a new language. We all have something to offer.

Share Meaning

Invite people to celebrate or heal together.

Share Resources

Make someone's day by delivering care packages or helping them get something they need.

Be Creative

These are just ideas to get you started. Make them yours, or do something else altogether. Your creativity is what makes NSG what it is!

Our introductory video showcases a few types of projects by others and gives a short overview on what you’ll need to know to apply for a Neighbourhood Small Grant.
