Announcing the 2016 Neighbourhood Small Grant recipients!

Congratulations to the 2016 Neighbourhood Small Grant Recipients!

CBT partnered with the Vancouver Foundation and Westcoast Community Resource Society to bring the Neighbourhood Small Grants program to the west coast for the second time.

Any local resident in the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve region could apply for up to $500 for a project in their neighbourhood that shares skills and knowledge among residents, builds a sense of community ownership and pride, and respects and celebrates diversity.

CBT is proud to announce 21 projects were funded; congrats to the program leaders and keep an eye out for the following events happening near you!
