Neighbourhood Engagement Matching Grant Program

Looking to have an event in your neighbourhood or begin a grassroots initiative? The City of Hamilton may be able to help through its Neighbourhood Engagement Matching Grant Program. This program provides one-time matching funds, up to $1,000 maximum, to support neighbourhood and place-based grassroots initiatives across all neighbourhoods in Hamilton. There are three areas of focus: Building Community, Changing Spaces, and Building Capacity.

This grant program requires a 100% matching community contribution. The matching component can include any combination of volunteer labour, donated materials, donated professional services and/or cash.
