  • The grant may be used to cover such things as building / facility rental costs, equipment rental costs, publicity, entertainment, refreshments, etc.

Agency Initiated Project Grants: 

  • Agency Initiated Projects shall be preventative in nature, providing children and youth with information, skills and activities which promote healthy living and positive activities. Grants will be available for new projects, or to augment existing programs.  
  • Core funded agencies, non-profit societies, community groups, Parent Advisory Councils, and School District No. 44 are eligible to apply for these grants. Programs should be offered in the City of North Vancouver, or be of primary benefit to City children and youth. Preference will be given to projects which exhibit inter- agency collaboration.
