Community Initiatives

The Fall 2017 intake is now closed.  Funding decisions have been made and applicants can expect to hear the result of their proposals shortly.  The Department will continue to engage the community and municipalities as it continues to review and improve its community development programs.  Proponents seeking further information are encouraged to connect with the contacts listed on the program website.
The Community Initiatives (CI) program supports projects that have a broad effect on Winnipeg's inner city or target specific groups across the inner city. 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.

Where is the program available?

An initiative under this program must involve more than one designated Neighbourhoods Alive! inner city neighbourhood in Winnipeg and can include inner city neighbourhoods not currently designated by Neighbourhoods Alive!
