Community-led projects in Burlington could receive up to $10,000 in funding

The City of Burlington is now accepting applications for the Neighbourhood Community Matching Fund (NCMF), created to inspire residents to get involved in community-led projects.

The NCMF’s goal is to create a sense of belonging and community pride in neighbourhoods while simultaneously building meaningful connections among residents.

Burlington residents who are interested, are encouraged to submit community-led project plans that aim to improve the community by April 30, 2021.

Approved projects could receive up to $10,000 in funding.

Residents are reminded that all projects must comply with the COVID-19 public health regulations as well as the provincial framework throughout their development and implementation.

In 2021, the NCMF will focus on small projects aimed to enhance infrastructure amenities within gardens, parks, buildings on public lands or on accessible lands to the public that meet the goal of the fund.

“Grassroots community building is where we get great value for money. Community-led initiatives that can build connectedness, walkability, visual appeal, recreation opportunities and better understanding can have lasting and meaningful impacts for years to come,” said Chris Glenn, Director of Recreation, Community and Culture.

“If you have an idea for your community, take a look at the website and consider moving it from idea to reality.”
