Neighbourhood Grants 2020

Deadline: October 22, 2019 at 11:59 pm (just before midnight)


Purpose of the Neighbourhood Grants Program

Toronto Strong Neighbourhood Strategy 2020 (TSNS 2020) is the City of Toronto’s action plan for making sure that each of our 140 social planning neighbourhoods can succeed and thrive.

Residents and agencies from 39 identified neighbourhoods have come up with a list of changes they want to see in their own neighbourhoods – called the TSNS Actions.

Grants between $1,000 to $3,000 are available for use by resident-groups to support those TSNS Actions in local communities!


What is the City's Neighbourhood Grants program?

The Neighbourhood Grants program will make available small grants between $1,000 to $3,000 to resident-led groups to help them inspire their neighbourhoods with events and activities held between March 16 and September 15, 2020.

Funding will be available for events and activities that take place in the 31 Neighbourhood Improvement Areas and the 8 Emerging Neighbourhoods between March 16, 2020 and September 15, 2020.

A maximum of $5,000 will be available in each of the 39 neighbourhoods in 2020.

The Neighbourhood Grants program aims to support the delivery of local actions identified by residents and community partners involved in TSNS 2020.
