CBT Grants

Our funding - from small to large - promotes the health of individuals, communities and ecosystems throughout the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Region. Each granting stream is supported by its own Advisory Committee comprised of local volunteers with interest and expertise relevant to the specific grant. Advisory Committees review proposals and make funding recommendations to the CBT Board of Directors.

Youth & Education Grant
The CBT Youth & Education Committee has an annual discretionary budget to fund small projects throughout the region. Projects will be funded up to a maximum of $5,000.

Funding Timeline
Applications are closed for 2022. The application window is typically in the first quarter of the year with funding disbursed by June. Stay tuned for specific dates in early 2023. Sign up for the CBT newsletter to receive a notification when CBT grants open.
