Community Counselling Grants

Funding Announcement

Community Counselling Grant Opportunity – Request for Proposals
Community Action Initiative is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity!

In partnership with the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Mental Health & Addictions, we are offering $10M in community counselling grants to:

  • increase access to community-based counselling for improved mental health and substance use outcomes; and
  • increase the quality of community-based counselling through the provision of necessary infrastructure to support non-profit, grassroots and/or volunteer-run programs.

This funding opportunity focuses on community counselling for adults in relation to mental health and substance use, with the goal of reaching underserved or hard to reach populations that do not have access to counselling opportunities.
Non-government, not-for-profit, community-based organizations or First Nations, Métis or Urban Aboriginal organizations in British Columbia are invited to apply for a grant up to $120,000 in annual funding, distributed over 3 years.

The application will be available online starting on Wednesday, June 26, 2019.

Applications must be completed through the CAI Online Grant System, and are due by Friday, July 26, 2019.

The link to the CAI Online Grant System, and important application guidelines can be found on the CAI website.
