MHBPNA Mini Grant Program

The Mount-Hope Breithaupt Park Neighbourhood Association has created a Mini Grant Program to support resident-led projects in our neighbourhood. Tell us a great idea that fits with the spirit of this program, and we’ll help support it with a grant of $50 to $200!


  • Your project takes place within Mount-Hope Breithaupt Park neighbourhood boundaries or otherwise benefits neighbourhood residents
  • Your project fosters inclusiveness and community-building
  • Your project adds value to the MHBP neighbourhood – placemaking, practical, esthetic, or otherwise
  • Your project conforms to all laws and bylaws
  • Your project does not promote a commercial, religious or political viewpoint
  • You agree to share photos and a brief summary of the outcome of the project within 1 month of completion

Example projects

  • $50 for materials to build a Little Library
  • $100 for a planter for a back alley beautification
  • $150 to purchase food for a free neighbourhood BBQ
  • $200 to rent an amp for a concert in a park

Grant Process

  • Applications are open in each calendar year from February 1st until November 30th, or until the funding pool for the current year is exhausted
    • Any funds not spent each year are returned to the MHBPNA general fund
  • The applicant sends an email to outlining the following details:
    • Project description
    • Intended impact
    • Location
    • Project schedule
    • Budget
    • Requested grant amount between $50 and $200
  • MHBPNA Treasurer consults with the Board to review the submission for fit with criteria and feasibility of budget & schedule
  • MHBPNA will respond with a decision within 14 days of receipt of the application
  • The successful applicant submits an expense claim including receipts for money spent for the project, and photos and a summary of the outcome of the project
    • Expense claims made more than 6 months after the scheduled date of the project may not receive a refund, at the discretion of the MHBPNA Board; to avoid disappointment, notify the MHBPNA of any delays in completing the project
