Summer 2023 Neighbourhood Small Grants Cycle Begins

Our 2023 Neighbourhood Small Grants cycle is well underway, and we are receiving many creative and exciting applications on a daily basis. Our Neighbourhood Small Grants committee looks forward to reviewing each one!

Applications are open until June 5, 2023.

What is Neighbourhood Small Grants?

Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) are grants of up to $500 for projects that will connect people with their neighbours. Each year, we see so many creative project ideas from little libraries to block parties! Since these are grants, you do not need to pay them back.

These grants are for individuals, not charities. You must live in Nanaimo, Ladysmith, Lantzville, Cedar, or Gabriola Island to apply to our stream of NSG. Many other communities offer NSG, but their application dates will vary.
