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

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.
