Homelessness Action Week and Supportive Housing grants

Does your non-profit organization have innovative ideas to build the capacity of individuals and communities to raise awareness about and respond to issues of homelessness in Vancouver?

If so, you may be eligible for a Homelessness Action Week (HAW) and Supportive Housing grant.

These grants are intended to support Vancouver-based non-profit societies that want to host an event or do a project in Vancouver that keeps within the spirit of HAW and supports residents living in supportive housing. There are two streams of funding. 

A limited number of grants are given every year.
