Vital Connections

Build Community with Whistler Resilient Streets

Get $ to do something cool with your neighbours!

Do you have a project idea that would enhance life on your street or shared property?

Do you want to get to know your neighbours better through a fun event?

From now until June 15th, Whistler has access to $10,000 in micro-grants from Whistler Resilient Streets to build and then celebrate community in Whistler neighbourhoods!

What is Resilient Streets?

It’s a pilot program that gives neighbours the funds to start street-level conversations with the goal of building greater connections between you and the community that you live in.

How do we get the $?

It’s as simple as 1…2…3!

STEP 1: Start with a planning grant application.

STEP 2: Meet, eat and choose a project or event.

STEP 3: Apply for a project or event micro-grant!

Resilient Streets is a program of the Building Resilient Neighbourhoods initiative, delivered in partnership in Whistler with the Whistler Centre for Sustainability and a diverse range of local partner organizations. This is made possible through funding support from PlanH. PlanH, implemented by BC Healthy Communities Society, facilitates local government learning, partnership development and planning for healthier communities where we live, learn, work and play. Working together with health authorities, UBCM and the Ministry of Health, PlanH supports Healthy Families BC, the Province’s health promotion strategy.
