Grants to British Columbia nonprofit organizations for capital projects, including those that address needs related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. First-time applicants must contact program staff prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended to enhance the quality of community. Projects must demonstrate public accessibility and widespread community benefit and must fall into one of the three project categories: (facilities, community infrastructure, and acquisitions.

The Capital Project Grants program has been adapted to address some of the financial challenges that not-for-profit organizations are facing due to COVID-19. For 2021, these projects will continue to be supported to help organizations respond to the impacts of COVID-19. Recognizing that many organizations have now implemented the necessary changes to the delivery of their programs or services, capital project applications for regular or COVID-19 projects will be assessed on equal consideration

Eligible Projects

To be considered for funding, a capital project must fit into one of the following categories. 

  1. Facilities: Construction of new facilities and renovation or maintenance of existing facilities;
  2. Community Infrastructure: The development of public amenities that improve B.C. residents’ quality of life; and
  3. Acquisitions: The purchase of fixed capital assets for long-term ownership and use by the organization (e.g. vehicles and equipment).
