Help us develop an improved Community Grants Policy

We're calling on our community to help us review and redevelop Merri-bek's Community Grants Policy and Guidelines.

Our Community Grants Program is a key community strengthening initiative that has been in existence since 1996. The program has not changed much since 2009 and we want to make sure this program continues to meet the needs and aspirations of our community.

    We have developed a draft policy and guidelines for the Community Grants Program in response to your feedback.

    We want to know if the proposed program would make it easier for you to apply for funding. All responses will remain confidential and anonymous.
