Community Infrastructure Grants

There is a total grant pool of $3 million.

Grant amount

Grants of up to $50,000 to support costs of planning and feasibility activities for future infrastructure projects or grants of up to $350,000 to assist with costs of ready-to-go community infrastructure projects.

Who should apply?

Eligible applicants can apply for funds to assist to renew, upgrade, or build new facilities to provide a better level of service, increased programs or improve how spaces function.

Our priority is to support community-led projects that increase community access and participation, demonstrate collaboration between groups and result in greater use of facilities.
