Neighbourhood Matching Fund

The Neighbourhood Matching Fund was created to provide matching dollars for neighbourhood improvements, celebrations, and projects developed and implemented by Neighbourhood Associations and community members.

Central to the Neighbourhood Matching Fund is the community match which requires awardees to match their award with contributions from the community like donated materials, professional services, and/or cash.

If you have an idea, the City of Kamloops will match the contributions up to $500.

Some of the awesome things that neighbourhoods have done:

  • community BBQ celebrations
  • movie nights in the park
  • murals
  • Halloween Block Parties
  • winter carnivals
