Announcing the first ever recipients of the CBT Neighbourhood Small Grants

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

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 12 projects were funded, congrats to the program leaders and keep an eye out for the following events happening near you!
