Hi, everyone!

Do you have a great idea for the community, but could use a bit of help to initiate it? 

The micro grant opportunity through This Is My Neighbourhood might be just the thing.

Please take a look at the grant application and if yourself, or someone you know, would be interested in initiating a project and feel it fits the goal of the micro grant program then let’s work together to make it happen.

Feel free to share this with the folks in your community where you feel appropriate, and I am available to answer questions and discuss options.

This program is similar to the ActivateYYC program that you might be familiar with. If not, check out some of the stories from that micro grant program here: https://calgarycommunities.com/activateyyc/stories/.

Let's see some great ideas!
