Core Support Grants (CSG)

What you need to know

We've combined Direct Social Services Grants and Organizational Capacity Building Grants into one funding stream called Core Support Grants.

The amounts of funding and eligibility requirements for each previous stream remain the same.

Key dates

  • Applications open: Tuesday, March 15, 2022
  • Application deadline: Friday, April 22, 2022 at 4:30pm

All applications must be submitted through VanApply.

Core Support Grants provide funding that addresses inequity and mitigates conditions that create vulnerability for residents of Vancouver.

Grants fund the direct delivery of social services to individual residents, and fund organizations that support other non-profits to improve their ability to deliver social services, address social issues, and navigate change.

If your organization receives a Core Support Grant (CSG) through the fall cycle (awarded in March), you are not eligible to apply for another CSG grant in the spring cycle, and must wait for the next fall cycle. Similarly, if your organization received a CSG grant through the spring cycle, they must wait for the next spring cycle to apply again.

The next fall CSG intake period will open on September 6, 2022, and close on October 21, 2022.
