CASE STUDY | Fostering Community Through Neighbourhood Grants

Community Engagement, Case Studies, Publications, Cities Deepening Community

Neighbourhood grants have been popping up across the country. These locally-based, resident-driven grants pave the way for neighbours to get to know each other while working together to implement their innovative ideas. These grants spark greater involvement in neighbourhoods and boost neighbourhood pride while making the places where we live even better!
As you consider whether a neighbourhood grant program is a good fit for your community and what the framework could look like in your community, we have compiled what we have learned from the City of Calgary, City of Victoria and the City of Kitchener’s grant programs.

Vibrant Communities

By Vibrant Communities

Vibrant Communities supports cities and local leaders to develop and implement large-scale change initiatives through four learning networks: Ending Poverty, Deepening Community, Building Youth Futures and Climate Transitions. Our belief is that when we are effective in strengthening community capacity to engage citizens, lead collaboratively, deepen community and reduce poverty, our work contributes to the building of peace and more equitable society.
