Self-Help Matching Grant Program

The Self-Help Matching Grant Program encourages projects expected to result in direct benefits to the community.

Individuals and organizations may request funding for projects which involve new construction, renovation or expansion of community facilities or spaces such as sports fields, parks, environmental habitat, community recreation, indoor sports area, arts/culture, streetscapes, etc.

Since it was launched in 2002, the Self-Help Matching Grant Program has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in matching funds for community projects such as audio-visual theatre equipment, playgrounds, building upgrades and specialized equipment.

The application deadline is April 30.
