Burlington awarding $10,000 for new community ideas


The City of Burlington is now accepting applications for the Neighbourhood Community Matching Fund (NCMF). The deadline for submissions is Feb. 24, 2020.

Up to $10,000 is available for each project.

The City says the initiative was created to inspire residents to champion community-led projects,

Burlington residents are encouraged to submit ideas inspired by the unique needs of residents and community groups. Projects can increase walkability, promote beautification, encourage recreational activity, build social connections, and improve safety or accessibility.

Burlington residents interested in applying for funds are encouraged to visit burlington.ca/matchingfund to learn more about the application process, guidelines, and past projects.

The NCMF provides up to $10,000 in city funding to support selected neighbourhood and community group led projects in Burlington. Approved projects receive up to 50 per cent of the funding for the project from the City. The neighbourhood or community group will match this funding with an equal contribution made up through any combination of volunteer hours, donated services, donated materials and supplies or other funds raised, such as cash donations.
