Neighbourhood Grants



Social Planning Toronto is excited to partner with the City of Toronto to support the Neighbourhood Grants Program.


COVID-19 Notice

The Neighbourhood Grants program will re-open on September 8, 2020. All deadlines for groups who received grants for 2020 activities are being extended. We will be in touch with each of you to figure out the best way to use your funds or support you to return the funds, if preferred.

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.
