New record number of 2023 Greener Co-op Microgrants

This summer, a record number of housing co-ops across the country will be getting to work on new sustainability initiatives, with support from a Greener Co-op Microgrant!

We’re thrilled to announce 49 co-ops across the country were selected this year. Over $160,000  will be awarded to help co-op communities launch their sustainability projects including community gardens, energy efficiency initiatives, electric vehicle charging, rainwater collection, cycling infrastructure and more!

Carpathia Housing Co-op is so excited about our new community gardens! These gardens will give us the opportunity to offset the rising cost of fresh produce and contribute to a healthy, balanced diet.  We look forward to a summer of gathering as a community and growing together, both literally and figuratively!  Thank you CHF Canada for this fantastic opportunity and we look forward to sharing our completed project with you.

The Mimico Co-op receives the CHF Canada Microgrant with much gratitude and appreciation. This grant will support the expansion of the vegetable garden, empower and educate residents while building community health through providing access to fresh produce that will nourish families. Thank you CHF Canada!

Congratulations to the co-ops selected! Stay tuned for stories from this year’s projects.

Thank you to the Community Housing Transformation Centre and the many generous sponsors who help make CHF Canada’s Greener Co-op Microgrant program possible.
