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.
