The Small Project Matching Grants Program is now closed.

The Small Project Matching Grants Program is for Registered Groups in good standing with the City of Mississauga Community Group Registry Program Policy. Applications may be submitted by informal groups of residents or other community groups if the project is sponsored by a Registered Group in good standing with the City.

An amount from $250-$2500 can be requested to support a specific NEW initiative that is outside the normal range of activity for the applicant to be implemented and completed in 2020.

Please note: The program is for new initiative project ideas that are "by the community for the community" that can:
