Vancouver Foundation and our local community partners are very proud to announce that Neighbourhood Small Grants and Greenest City Neighbourhood Small Grants are back for communities across the lower mainland. Apply now for a small grant of up to $500!

We are excited to give local people the opportunity to bring their community building ideas to life. Grants are open for residents living in 17 communities throughout Vancouver, the North Shore, Burnaby, North Surrey, New Westminster and Richmond.

You can come up with all kinds of creative ideas to bring people together. Previous grants have supported street theatre, block parties, community gardens, arts and craft workshops, habitat protection, and much more. Applicants are encouraged to think about ways to help communities build strong connections between residents, share skills and knowledge, build a sense of ownership and pride, and respect and celebrate diversity. Anything that makes your neighbourhood a better place to live!
