Victoria Foundation has three streams within the Community Grants program: Focus Grants, Vital Grants, and Collaboration Grants
These grants may be used to develop projects at the idea stage, pilot a project that addresses one or more Vital Signs Issue Areas, or support initial collaboration with community partners. Focus Grants may also be used for a capital project, or to support or strengthen an existing effective project or program.
These grants support evidence-based projects or programs that address one or more Vital Signs Issue Area. In general, Vital Grants support proposals to expand, replicate or adapt an existing proven project or program. Vital Grants also support the development of regional collaborations with community partners.
Eligibility for the Collaboration Grant is by approval only. Applicants may be approved to apply for this grant if the organization is working across sectors to address long-term regional change in more than one Vital Signs Issue Area.
Each of these three streams has special guidelines. You can find additional information about each of the streams in their respective guidelines - see Supporting Documents below.
