We are pleased to announce that a total of 11 projects have been funded through the Spring Neighborhood Small Grants (NSG) program.
The NSG program is based on a simple but powerful idea – when people feel a sense of connection and belonging in their neighbourhood, they are more likely to be engaged in activities that make it a better place to live. Spring 2021 marked the second time the NSG program has been offered in the Comox Valley and the community response was outstanding. This increase in number of applications and the creativity of the projects demonstrate the program’s guiding principle of strengthening the social fabric of our community through active engagement.
