Vancouver Foundation is pleased to announce Neighbourhood Small Grants are available again in Victoria (Hillside-Quadra). These grants are made possible through a partnership between Vancouver Foundation, Victoria Foundation, and Quadra Village Community Centre.
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 to live. Residents can apply for a small grant of up to $500 to bring people together and build community in their neighbourhood.
These small grants help connect and engage residents in their community by encouraging them to come up with their own ideas for how their neighbourhood can be strengthened. Examples include block parties, cooking workshops, book exchange libraries, and community gardens.
Neighbourhood Small Grants applications for Victoria (Hillside-Quadra) are now open, and the deadline for applications is Friday June 10, 2016.
