At the end of March, 2017 City Council approved the new Community Investment Funding (CIF) framework.
The new framework merges the previous five grant streams into three new grant programs that will better support new and emerging groups, support sector resilience, and encourage resident engagement and leadership development.
The new grant programs will be phased in over the coming year:
- $250,000 for Neighbourhood Micro-Grants (launched in April, 2017)
- $1,000,000 for Community Projects and Events (to be launched in May, 2017)
- $450,000 for Capacity Building (to be launched in Fall 2017)
The former five grant streams will no longer be accepting new applications, however we are funding the final year of multi-year grants previously allocated under the former investment programs.
