The Neighbourhood Grants Program provides $1,000 - $3,000 in funding to support resident-led groups to make changes they want to see in their communities.

Social Planning Toronto's role is to distribute funds to the resident-led groups and to provide training and other supports, as needed.

Learn more about the program and our skills-building and connecting opportunities for grant recipients in the video below.



"Wherever I live, I want to be a part of it when it comes to change."
