Green grants

Community Garden

Greenest City Fund

To support green ideas generated and implemented by the community, the City has teamed up with the Vancouver Foundation to create the $2 million Greenest City Fund.

Until 2015, the Greenest City fund will support community ideas through three granting programs:

  • Greenest City Neighbourhood Small Grants - Up to $70,000 per year to fund projects by Vancouver residents that benefit their neighbourhood
  • Greenest City Generation Green Grants - Up to $100,000 per year to fund Vancouver youth-led programs
  • Greenest City Community Grants - Up to $330,000 per year to fund Vancouver projects led by community-based charitable organizations

Each program has its own unique requirements, application processes, and deadlines, so be sure to learn more about all three.

Neighbourhood Matching Fund

Schools and community groups planning a garden- or green project on public land may qualify for financial support from the Neighbourhood Matching Fund. Projects should improve local green spaces, build community connections, celebrate diversity, and leave a lasting physical legacy.
