The Comox Valley Community Foundation is offering a new grant opportunity for individuals in the Comox Valley.

The initiative is coming through its new Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) program which is aimed at building community and strengthening connections where people live. 

The CVCF is teaming up with other other participating Vancouver Island communities which make up the NSG Island Network including Clayoquot Sound, Nanaimo, North Island-Mount Waddington, Parksville-Qualicum, Salt Spring Island, Victoria, and Campbell River.

“We are very excited to be offering this new granting opportunity for residents of the Comox Valley to build connections through community-based and individual-led programming,” said Matt Beckett, CVCF’s President. 

“The NSG program is particularly important now as we head into the fall and winter months, allowing people to plan and deliver programming focused on social connection and the exchange of gifts of knowledge and time.”

Applications for grants between $50 and $500 will be accepted starting Tuesday through October 25th.

Neighbourhood Small Grants projects must be free, accessible, and welcoming for all.
