Small project funding is to be used to support projects identified by resident members/groups in your neighbourhood. These may be groups you are already aware of or new groups that want to engage more in the neighbourhood. Small projects can be a great way to reach out to residents. This funding is not for ongoingprograms in your neighbourhood, but a way to get new ideas and people working together on time limited projects and activities in your neighbourhood. Each neighbourhood has up to $5,000 to spend on local projects. Each project or activity can apply for up to $1,500 per project per year.
Bishop Park Team up to Cleanup
Trailer request form was sent last month and has been requested for April 25th for the first clean up of Bishop Park for the year. The park itself isn’t in poor shape but a good raking and perhaps a clean up of the surrounding alleyways would be a welcome sight for our neighbors. Clean up officially starts 9am and will go until 12pm. Natasha and possibly a few early risers will be there to do safety inductions and assist any volunteers who would like to come out. Bishop Clean up will not have a flyer drop

The Hamilton Community Foundation and the City of Hamilton are the sponsors of the Small Grants Project Funding for the Neighbourhood Action Strategy in Hamilton. It is administered by the Social Planning and Research Council of Hamilton. The primary purpose of the small grants is to have funding available to encourage and facilitate resident engagement in the neighbourhoods/hubs identified as part of the City of Hamilton’s Neighbourhood Action Strategy. Secondly, we want to make the decision making process about the use of the small grants to be the responsibility of the Community Planning Teams and be used as a tool to engage residents in neighbourhood building. The neighbourhoods that are eligible for funding are: Jamesville, Beasley, GALA (Gibson and Landsdale), Riverdale, Keith, McQuesten, Rolston, Davis Creek, Sherman, Crown Point and Stinson.
