Grass Roots Grant
Residents often think about small items or projects that can enhance or physically improve the appearance or social usability of their neighbourhood. Through matching funds, the Grass Roots Grant Program focuses on resident-led neighbourhood projects that will reinvigorate neighbourhoods or make public areas more beautiful and usable.
The Grass Roots Grant Program offers 50/50 matching funding to local neighbourhood groups to a maximum of $4,000. The purpose of the program is to encourage resident involvement to make neighbourhoods an even better place to live while promoting neighbourhood based solutions. Through the grant program, the City hopes to inspire residents to connect with their neighbours and initiate neighbourhood enhancement projects. Grass Roots Grants can only be considered for projects on municipal (public) lands only.
Who can apply?
Any group of two or more residents with an idea for a project that will enhance their neighbourhood is eligible. Experience in organizing a project is not necessary.
