Please review the Program Guidelines (links below) before beginning the application process to ensure that you understand the goals and objectives, eligibility criteria, assessment considerations, and review process of the Grant Program you are applying for.

The Grant Applicant User Guide listed below provides a step-by-step guide through the City Grants Web-based System. To begin your application, please access the web-based City Grants Application System by clicking on the link below.  FireFox and GoogleChrome are recommended browsers.

The City is offering a second 2017 Capital Grant intake. Applicants who did not receive a 2017 grant in the first intake are eligible to apply.

Applicants who received a 2016 City Grant will need to submit a final report by opening your 2016 application and completing the Grant Use/Final report section.  This must be submitted prior to making a 2017 application by May 5, 2017. Our second submission deadline has now closed.
