Description

Introduction

The purpose of the Supportive Housing Grant (SHG) program is to benefit residents of supportive housing and to foster positive relationships between supportive housing providers, residents and the local community. The grant is intended to support events or projects that bring supportive housing providers, residents and community together to promote healthy and vibrant neighbourhoods. SHG recipients will be non-profit societies that want to plan and administer an event or project in Vancouver that will contribute to these goals. Non-profit societies that are not supportive housing operators must provide a formal statement from a supportive housing operator of their partnership in the granting process.

Supportive Housing Grant Priorities

Events or projects that receive SHG funding should complete their projects or events within one year of City Council approval of the project, no later than December 31, 2023.

The goals of the City of Vancouver SHG are to: 

a)    Support residents of Vancouver’s Supportive Housing;

b)    Support events or projects to foster connection between supportive housing providers, residents and the neighbouring community;

c)    Build greater understanding of the role of supportive housing in Vancouver;

d)    To bolster/elevate the voices and experiences of supportive housing residents

e)    To decrease the stigma associated with supportive housing, and some residents struggling with mental health and addiction and to help overcome barriers between supportive housing residents and the broader community.

Funding

This 2022 Supportive Housing Grants offers two streams for funding, large and small.

  • Large Grant: Up to $15,000
  • Small Grant: Up to $5,000

Applicants to both the Direct Services Projects and Social Engagement Programs streams can apply to either the large or small grant streams. 

Matching Funding: The City of Vancouver strongly encourages applicants to leverage additional funds from other sources to match or supplement grant funds, especially for large grant applications. We will evaluate all applications firstly on their own merits, but the ability of the applicant to bring additional funds to the table will still factor in our evaluation.
