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 Grants
An initiative of CBT's Youth Advisory Committee, this grant is designed by and decided by youth from the Ucluelet, Tofino, and nuučaan̓uł (Nuu-chah-nulth) communities. The committee provides support and grants up to $1000 for local ideas, projects, and activities for the benefit of youth who live here.

The committee encourages you to only request the amount you need as they have a limited budget and want to assist as many groups or projects as they can. Members of the CBT Youth Committee will review all proposals and select the recipients. Please read the information below to learn about funding timelines, amounts, and priorities. If you have any questions or concerns about this grant, please contact Jason Sam: jason@clayoquotbiosphere.org.
