The 2022- 23 Community Small Grants Program is now closed. Thank you to those who applied for this year's program!
For those who received a grant, the deadline to submit the final report is March 20, 2023.
The Daniel McIntyre / St. Matthews Revitalization Inc. Community Small Grants program was established in 2007 to support smaller projects that meet a need in the community and help connect residents with each other. They are available to organizations located within, or that serve, the Daniel McIntyre and St. Matthews neighbourhoods of Winnipeg. Please note that projects located outside the boundaries of Daniel McIntyre and St. Matthews, or that operate city-wide, are not eligible to receive funding.
Individuals who wish to apply will have to partner with a community organization. Our sister organization, the Daniel McIntyre / St. Matthews Community Association, may be a good match.
Grant amounts range from $500 to a maximum of $5,000 in a single year.
Projects must address one or more of the following Neighbourhood Renewal Fund categories and involve as much public and volunteer participation as possible:
Capacity Building: Outreach activities such as consultations, newsletters and community meetings.
Neighbourhood Stability: Beautification activities such as community gardens, murals and clean-ups.
Social and recreational activities such as festivals and after school activities.
Community Economic Development: Skill building activities, training, and/or employment/volunteer development.

For this year, we are accepting applications on a first come, first served basis rather than having a firm deadline.
If you have more questions about the program or need assistance to fill out the application form, please contact our Community Small Grants Coordinator at 204-774-7005 ext. 102 or outreach [at] dmsmri.ca.
