Neighbourhood Small Grants

Ideas that Connect Neighbours

The Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) program helps residents of any age, experience, or background take part in building community.

Do you have a great idea to strengthen connections in your community? In partnership with the Vancouver Foundation, Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) are back! Residents in the North Okanagan are encouraged to apply for up to $500 to grow their idea and connect with their neighbours and community.

Applications are open from April 2nd, 2021 to June 15th, 2021.

Responsive Neighbourhood Small Grants (R-NSG) is a grant stream created to support small-scale community projects in neighbourhoods and small communities in the North Okanagan. Projects must comply with the social and physical distancing guidelines as per BC Health and Safety guidelines.

Responsive Neighbourhood Small Grants support creative projects by individuals that:

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

Our grants range from $50 to $500. A grant is money we give you to help you bring your project to life. You must apply for the grant, but you do not need to pay the money back.
