Application forms and the Application Guide can be found at: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/safety/crime-prevention/community-crime-prevention/grants.

Please review the entire application guide, including the FAQ, before applying. The application guide provides an overview of the application process, stream criteria, and key deadlines. The guidelines also contain important parameters for applying, which if not taken into consideration, may adversely affect the success of your proposal.

Applications will be accepted until 4:30 PM (Pacific time) on Wednesday, November 23, 2022. Due to the volume of applications that must be reviewed, and fiscal year-end being March 31st, applicants will be notified of the status of their applications in April 2023.
