spark Community Action Grants are intended to give residents of Ottawa’s priority neighbourhoods an opportunity to have direct input and influence into the improvement of their community by increasing social interaction, reducing isolation, increasing community safety and building local skills. For more information, open the interactive map to view our city-wide investments.
Spark members will allocate Community Action Grants to fund projects and initiatives in priority neighbourhoods within Ottawa. Spark recognizes the power of women to drive change in our community. As such, priority will be given, but not restricted, to applications for initiatives, projects or programs that specifically seek to support, empower or engage women and young women residing in Ottawa’s priority neighbourhoods. Spark Community Action Grants will be allocated twice per year in Spring and Fall.
