This is a reminder that United Way British Columbia has released an open call for proposals for a one-time grant of up to $25,000 to Community-Based Seniors’ Services organizations and communities across BC for the 2022-23 year. This grant is intended to support organizations, local governments and First Nations communities in their efforts to plan for – and respond to – extreme weather emergencies through practical, innovative, and/or low-barrier solutions that support the health and safety of isolated and vulnerable seniors, including partnership development, mobilizing and coordinating efforts, and increasing volunteer capacity. Information regarding the grant is accessible in CORE B.C.’s Emergency Preparedness and Response Group.

Applications must be submitted electronically using UWBC’s new granting portal, Salesforce Experience Cloud. A video tutorial and information session on how to apply can be found in the linked group above (please review the application documents carefully).

Emergency Preparedness and Response grants are awarded on a one-year term to be expended by August 31, 2023.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis beginning July 4, 2022, and will be awarded based on available funds and to accommodate seasonal needs.

If you require technical support, please contact Calum Petersen, Granting Specialist, UWBC at calump@uwbc.ca. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, according to available funds and to accommodate seasonal need.
