What is a Responsive Neighbourhood Small Grant?
Fall 2020 intake is now open.
Responsive Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) provides grants of up to $500 for projects that connect people socially or involve sharing skills or talents with each other. Projects must stay within guidelines for physical distancing.
And yes, a grant means you don’t need to pay back this funding — no matter the outcome.
For 20 years, Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) has supported ideas that bring people together. We still believe this is possible right now, during a pandemic. That’s why we’ve launched a Responsive NSG grant stream that will fund small-scale projects that involve reducing social isolation.
As a local partner organization to Vancouver Foundation, Whistler Community Foundation is assisting in administering the Responsive Neighbourhood Small Grants Program. Our community coordinator, Claire works and lives in Whistler. And, Claire is the touch point for any questions you may have about this grant.
