Community Recreation Investment Program
The Community Recreation Investment Program provides short-term grants to projects that contribute to the City's goal to increase participation in recreation activities that support social and physical development. By working through community based organizations, the City is able to improve access for those with the greatest need, including ethno-cultural communities and equity seeking groups, than it would be able to offer on its own.
Community-led efforts to increase participation in recreation activities help create opportunities for people to work together to address a clearly identified recreation service gap or issue faced by a group of people. The Community Recreation program makes resources available to community-based not-for-profit groups that are in a unique position to reach those with the greatest need and ensure recreation activities reflect diverse needs.
Funded projects will bring about a change in capacity (i.e. new skills, knowledge, partnerships) for people to continue participating in recreation activities after the project is completed.
