Small Grants & NRF Funds
Small Grants are funds administered by the Brandon Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation to support community projects for up to $5,000. The purpose of the grant is to support small projects that bring people together and respond to priorities of the BNRC. Funds are provided to local groups that require modest short-term project funding.
Housing & Homelessness
The goals of the Brandon Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation's housing and homelessness initiatives are to work collectively with the community to provide support and resources to create safe and affordable housing. Another aim is to provide support and resources to BNRC residents for exterior facade restoration and enhancement.
