Looking to strengthen the diversity of your neighbourhood, while having fun at the same time? If you are creative enough, you just might be eligible for a Creative City Neighbourhood Initiative grant.
An exciting opportunity to become involved in this the Creative City Neighbourhood Initiative (CCNI) is available right in your local neighbourhood! The Creative City Neighbourhood Initiative (CCNI) project is intended to assist community groups in making their own communities more creative by providing one-time funding to complete a project developed by, and with, neighbours.I see nothing currently preventing neighbours "who wish to come together" from doing so except perhaps laziness or an unwillingness to part with a bit of their own cash.
Flyers for advertising and food are among the allowable expenses, though overall improvements to public and private property are apparently not, which is rather baffling, considering landscape equipment rental is allowed, and the creation of creative spaces, and beautification of the neighbourhood are encouraged. Presumably, fixing the pothole-ridden streets is not an eligible use of grant money, but maybe a metal tree or two will be planted.
