A Vancouver Foundation Neighbourhood Small Grants Story:

Planning a neighbourhood-based project in East Vancouver? Thought we’d pass on word about three small grants now available for 2017.

Funded by Vancouver Foundation, the City of Vancouver and Community Foundations of Canada, these grants offer you the chance to apply for $50 to $500 to work together with your neighbours on small projects that build community and/or sustainability:

  • Neighbourhood Small Grants offer up to $500 each for projects that, in the program’s words, offer opportunities to “connect and engage residents, share skills and knowledge, build a sense of ownership and pride, and respect and celebrate diversity.”
  • Greenest City Neighbourhood Small Grants provide up to $500 for residents of Vancouver to develop projects that contribute to the City of Vancouver’s Greenest City 2020 Action Plan.
  • Canada 150 Small Grants offer up to $500 for residents of the Lower Mainland to support projects that mark Canada’s 150th anniversary.

Submit applications at

Applications are available in English, Chinese, Arabic, Farsi, Tagalog, Spanish, Punjabi and Vietnamese.

Application deadline: April 4, 2017
