Grants awarded to special projects in Victoria
Eleven applications for special projects received a funding nod from the city's community and development standing committee.
Some of the bigger recommended grants are for the Fernwood Neighbourhood Resource Group's food security project ($10,000), the Ready to Rent B.C. Association's housing readiness program ($10,000), and Victoria Community Micro Lending Society's loan and mentoring pilot for First Nations ($10,000).
In total, the city will disperse approximately $85,000 to special projects, should city council approve the recommendation.
