A neighbourhood isn't just a place. It's a group of people who call that place home. And because they share a home, they also share a connection to one another. The Neighbourhood Small Grants program was created to make those connections stronger.
Funded by the Vancouver Foundation, the program operates in communities throughout the Lower Mainland. In Richmond, it's proudly administered by RCRG.
Here's how it works. Every year, we distribute grants of up to $500 so individuals can complete small community projects, from block parties to urban gardens. And while the projects we fund are diverse, they all have the same goal: to strengthen connections between neighbours. At the end of the year, we invite all grant recipients to a special celebration, where they can each talk about their project and how it helped bring their neighbourhood together.
In 2018, grant applications will be accepted from Monday, February 19 until Monday, April 9. Visit the Neighbourhood Small Grants website to apply.
