Ideas that Connect Neighbours

APPLY FOR UP TO $500

Neighbourhood Small Grants is a grant stream created to support small-scale community projects in neighbourhoods and communities throughout the Kootenay Boundary. Neighbourhood Small Grants recognize that any individual can offer their ideas, skills, experiences and contacts to create projects that:

  • build community strength and resillience
  • foster community creativity and well being, and
  • alleviate social isolation

Grants of up to $500 are available. A grant is money you receive to help bring your project to life. You must apply for the grant, but you do not need to pay the money back.
