Annual city program offers up to $5,000 for community projects, $1,000 for activities

Bright ideas that would bring vibrant Victoria neighbourhoods together through projects and activities will be collected through applications for the city’s My Great Neighbourhood grants.

The program was developed to support connected neighbourhoods with funding of up to $5,000 for community resiliency projects, and up to $1,000 for community-building activities.

This year $131,330 of funding is available and applications – accepted starting April 1 – will be reviewed on a monthly basis until the closing date on Oct. 31. More than $755,000 in grants have supported 250 community projects in Victoria since 2016.
