Celebration and Activity Grant
The Celebration and Activity Grant Program is an initiative to encourage residents and community groups of Chilliwack to engage in neighbourhood or community events and activities that promote positive social awareness and connectedness.
The program supports residents and organizations that have small, but powerful ideas that will bring people together to make their neighbourhood and community a vibrant and liveable place to be. Events and activities should engage, educate and celebrate community members. For example, a block party or Christmas social would be eligible for consideration of funding.
Residents can apply for amounts of up to $1000 per event or activity. Funding can support the planning, organizing, and implementation of neighbourhood/community festivities. Successful applicants match their requested amount with contributions of services, donated materials, and/or cash. The funding serves as a partnership between the City and the applicant and where each contributes equally towards a proposed event and activity.
Please note that funding does not support the dispensing, sale, purchase and consumption of alcohol on public property. The host(s) acknowledge that any funding or resources provided by the City of Chilliwack for this event will not be used for the procurement or consumption of alcohol.
All Chilliwack residents, students, community groups, and organizations or associations can apply. Informal groups, businesses and organizations are also eligible to apply and do not have to be a registered association.
Although the City of Chilliwack will make every effort to accommodate requests, applications submitted less than six (6) intake days from the start date of the event may not be eligible for funding or other resources.
