Covid-19 Responsive Neighbourhood Small Grants
Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) provides grants of up to $500 for small projects that foster community connectivity and stay within guidelines for physical distancing. Neighbourhood small grants are based on a simple but powerful idea: when people feel a sense of connection and belonging to their neighbourhood, they are more likely to be engaged in activities that make it a better place to live. When people are active in the life of their neighbourhood, our communities are strengthened from the ground up.

Neighbourhood Small Grants have adapted to COVID-19. Residents can apply for grants of $50 to $500 for a project that connects people socially or shares skills and knowledge among community members while complying with public health orders for physical distancing.
