Funding for Love My Neighbourhood events in Burlington now available


Published April 5, 2022 at 12:07 pm

Burlington groups or residents can apply for up to $500 in grants to hold a community event.

The City of Burlington’s Love My Neighbourhood grant program will recognize events that promotes connections, strengthens relationships and builds support systems for neighbourhoods.

Community members can plan a one-time or weekly event. The events must be free and inclusive to the entire local community.

“Now, more than ever, we need to build our sense of community and connections with our neighbours,” said Chris Glenn, the city’s director of Recreation, Community and Culture.

“This program is designed to help remove some barriers and build stronger connections between neighbours and communities by putting people together and having fun.”

The Love My Neighbourhood program will also work with the applicants for road closure permits, park permits, indoor facility rentals and insurance.
