What is the Neighborhood Grants Program?
The Watershed Alliance offers a city-funded Neighborhood Grants program to support environmental and community focused projects implemented by Vancouver’s neighborhood associations. Annually, $22,500 in micro-grants are offered to help inspire and support sustainable community efforts to improve shared areas of the City.
Grants of up to $2,000 are available and typically range from $400-2,000. Applications are accepted on an on-going basis until all funds are awarded for the year. Projects must provide a clear benefit to the community and focus on enhancing the environment. The neighborhood is required to contribute a 1-to-1 match of the grant funds.
City of Vancouver neighborhood associations are eligible to apply. Individuals or organizations with ideas for a qualifying project can partner with a neighborhood association to apply.
Examples of potential projects:
Native Plant or Pollinator Gardens, Friends of Trees Neighborhood Planting Events, Invasive Tree Removal, Living Walls, Nature Play areas, etc. Here is a list of: Neighborhood Grants Projects Funded 2016-17
