The City of Penticton's Official Community Plan identifies the importance of complete, vibrant and great neighbourhoods. There are many aspects of a great neighbourhood. Two important ways that residents can contribute to great neighbourhoods include getting to know your neighbours, and taking time to find opportunities to make your neighbourhood an even greater place to live, work, and age!
Neighbourhood Small Grants
The City of Penticton and Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen are working together to provide small grants for neighbours and community members to use to take small-scale actions that have impacts on the health, wellness, and safety of our community and residents.
Residents of Penticton can apply for a small grant ($50 to $500) for projects that make their neighbourhood (or a part of Penticton) greater places to live, work, and age. Examples of previous projects include activities such as block parties, little libraries, sharing cupboards, jamming sessions, film nights, and community gardens and harvest suppers. Read the 2022 Small Neighbourhood Grants report for even more ideas! As a grant recipient, you can become a changemaker in your neighbourhood.
To learn more, a virtual information session will be held Thursday, April 6, 2023, from 6:30 – 8:00 PM. To RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
