Get Funding and Help for Your Project in Port Coquitlam

The City of Port Coquitlam is now accepting applications for the following grant program.

Self-Help Matching Grant Program – Application Deadline – March 31, 2020

Non-profit Port Coquitlam organizations, including sport, arts, environmental, parent/teacher and community-service groups are eligible to apply for matching funds between $1,000 and $10,000 for a future capital project that will take place within Port Coquitlam.

Project items can include new specialized equipment, new construction or upgrades of community facilities, sports fields, parks, playgrounds, and environmental habitats. Past successful applications have included the creation of a Learning Garden by the P.A.C. at Castle Park Elementary, equipment for digitization of archival documents by the Port Coquitlam Heritage Society and a kitchen upgrade at the Kinsmen Club of Port Coquitlam. 

A review committee will rank applications based on community support, public benefit, project budget and design. The decisions will be announced by the end of July.

Those interested in applying for the grant are encouraged to sign up for the information session taking place on February 26 from 6 – 7 p.m. at the Michael Wright Art Gallery, located in the Gathering Place in Leigh Square.
