Do you have a cool and creative idea to make Vernon a more sustainable place to live? Are you passionate about helping our community reduce emissions or prepare for the impacts of climate change? We have a program to help you activate change!
This past Earth Day, the City launched the 2022 Sustainability Grants program to help engage Vernon residents with sustainable neighbourhood actions that can make a real difference.
For 2022 only, the program includes separate spring and fall application periods. Grants up to $1,000 are available to encourage sustainability projects led by Vernon residents, youth, non-profit organizations, and community groups.
The application deadline for the spring intake is May 15, 2022. Selected grant recipients will be announced after the May 30th Council meeting and will have until December 31, 2022, to complete their projects.
