The matching grants program aims to deliver local, community-based projects and:
- engage the community
- develop skills
- build capacity
- share funding arrangements.
The program mainly works with community groups that partner with the City to support events, services and projects in their local neighbourhoods.
Applicants are required to demonstrate how they will address the needs of a specific community project, which may include:
- cultural projects
- community building ideas
- cycling-related projects
- community gardens
- public art projects
- multicultural programs
- neighbourhood events and activities.
The program supports projects that involve genuine community participation. By 'matching' what the community contributes, the City is building a sense of community and strengthening partnerships as people work together on the project. Applications will be open in late 2014.
