Applications are being accepted from eligable organizations for one-time funding through multiple programs for projects that will be completed by March 31, 2018. For this intake, across all programs priority will be given to projects that focus on the following:
Accessibility - Addressing and reducing barriers to participation for Manitobans regardless of where they live, their age, gender, cultural background, sexual identity, physical or mental ability or income.

Green Spaces & Active Transportation - Maximizing the use of parks, playgrounds, trails and pathways through planning and program opportunities.

Newcomers - Addressing the unique needs of immigrants and refugees, buildings on and encouraging involvement in the community.
Projects that involve partnerships with two or more stakeholders or demonstrate broad community support will receive additional priority consideration.

It funds activities that enhance economic development, increase safety and prevent crime, reduce at-risk behaviour, contribute to better health practices, strengthen tenant-landlord relations and improve coordination and cooperation.
