Neighbours Helping Neighbours

Graphic with text that reads: Eligible Projects include Emergency Preparedness, Climate Change and Caring for Nature.

Neighbours Helping Neighbours (NHN) is a grant that supports getting to know the folks around you and building connections. NHN does not replace official disaster response, but these close relationships can be invaluable when something unexpected comes along. From needing to borrow a missing ingredient to having someone keep an eye on your home when you are on vacation, being surrounded by people you can trust can make a huge difference in your quality of life.

These kind of relationships just don’t happen and one has to create opportunities to connect with their neighbors and spend time getting to know each other. Sault Ste. Marie is offering grants of up to $500 for neighbourhoods that host an event which will allow neighbours to connect and build resilience at a neighbourhood scale.
