Community Initiatives

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! 

Are there specific dates for submitting applications?

Applications for projects were submitted through a single window intake that closed May 28, 2018. Grant funding will be based on completion of identified and approved eligible project expenses incurred on or before March 31, 2019.
