Grant Opportunity

Vancouver Coastal Health, North Shore Population Health Program is offering small grants of about $1500 to community groups. Garden Applications.

New this year: This year our focus is on building community capacity to implement the North Shore Food Charter. We will only fund a few garden initiatives as we want to broaden the types of projects funded.

Food Charter Workshop Required In order to better inform applicants about the North Shore Food Charter, a workshop will be held this spring (probably May). Participation in the workshop is a pre-requisite to applying for a grant this year. The exception is for those applying for a grant related to a garden as we understand you want to start your work in April.

How and when do I apply? For garden applications, submit the application form by March 20, 2015. Applications will be reviewed in the week of March 23, 2015.

If you want to apply for funding after attending the North Shore Food Charter workshop in May, please use the same application form. We will set a deadline and announce it as soon as the workshop date is set.
