Colwood Grants In Aid Program - Financial Assistance for Community Organizations

Colwood's Mayor and Council recognize that many not-for-profit organizations provide extremely valuable contributions to our community. Each year a portion of the budget is set aside for community support funding, and applications are carefully considered by Council. Small grants are available to encourage programs that enhance quality of life for Colwood residents by promoting safety, health, arts, culture, economic diversity or environmental care.

Colwood Create Places Grant

At the end of 2020, the City of Colwood put out the call for ideas from residents to bring new energy to shared spaces in Colwood. The idea was to bring neighbours together to get creative and transform spaces while fostering a renewed sense of community pride. It is one way the City promotes placemaking, which is about reimagining spaces in fun and exciting ways through art, gardens, gathering areas, or other programming.
