We are currently accepting applications for the 2023 Youth Grants program. Please review the information below. The deadline for applications is September 24, 2023. If you have questions or need assistance, please reach out to youth@cnv.org.

Do you have an idea for an event, initiative, program or service but don’t have enough money to turn it into reality? Consider applying for a Youth Grant.

The purpose of this fund is to provide seed money to support or initiate events, programs and services for children and youth in the City of North Vancouver. All activities supported by this fund must be based in the City of North Vancouver, or be of primary benefit to children and youth residents in the City.

This fund is not available for sports programs, or to supplement core funding for Outreach Youth Services. Efforts should be made to involve children and youth who are not normally involved in community activities. Grants approved under this fund shall be for new events, programs or services, or to enhance existing events, programs or services, which have proven successful.

Agency Initiated Projects or Events ($3,000)

The City offers grants of up to $3,000 for special projects undertaken for children and youth up to the age of 21 years. Projects funded by these grants should be preventative in nature, providing children and youth with information, skills and activities, which enable them to live fuller, more productive, lives. Grants of up to $3,000 will be available as seed money for new projects, or to augment existing programs. Grants may be used to cover staffing costs and/or program expenses. Preference will be given to projects which exhibit inter-agency collaboration and which give special consideration to integrating children and youth with disabilities, from low-income families and of ethnic minorities.

Youth Initiated Projects or Events ($500)

The City offers grants of up to $500 for projects and events undertaken for youth between the ages of 12 and 21 years. These grants are intended to provide youth with funding assistance to put on community projects and events. The grant may be used to cover expenses such as building rental, equipment rentals, publicity, entertainment and/or refreshments.
