Grant Intake Opens For Urban And Hometown Green Team Program


Grant applications are now being accepted for the Urban and Hometown Green Team program. The grants support hiring youth ages 15 to 29 to work on community projects between May 1 and Sept. 30. Eligible recipients include non-profit organizations in Winnipeg and rural Manitoba, and municipal governments in rural Manitoba.

In 2021, the Urban and Hometown Green Team program approved 691 community projects for up to $9 million to support approximately 2,000 youth employment opportunities across the province.

This year’s funding prioritizes full-time employment opportunities for youth, projects that support COVID-19 response and recovery efforts, and projects that respond to community need and partnerships.

The grants cover 100 per cent of wage costs plus $250 per position for non-profit organizations. Municipal governments receive 50 per cent of wage costs and $125 per position on a cost-shared basis.

The deadline for applications is Monday, Jan. 17, 2022. For more information on Urban and Hometown Green Team applications, visit
