The Sustainable Neighbourhood Small Grant will support and empower residents to undertake their own greenMarkham initiatives – in their homes and gardens, on the road, at work and in the community.
Together with community leadership, residents have the potential to bring change and build vibrant, sustainable neighbourhoods.
Projects that receive funding will help achieve one or more of the following:
- Contribute to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
- Enhance the health, resilience and sustainability of our ecosystem and natural environment
- Help attain Markham’s Zero Waste targets
- Beautify neighbourhoods and communities
- Conserve and protect our natural environment
Projects, activities and events that aim to increase environmental awareness and engagement will be given high priority. Youth-led or youth-centric projects are strongly encouraged.
