Community Support & Recovery Plan Grant Program

Coquitlam not-for-profits and other community groups may apply for Community Support and Recovery (CSRP) Grants to replace lost revenue or to provide programs that respond to the pandemic.

Application Period 

Nov. 16, 2020 to March 1, 2021 (or until funds are depleted)

Grant Types

Revenue Recovery Grants – up to $5,000 

  • For existing registered non-profit organizations (some exceptions may be made).
  • Intended to replace lost anticipated revenue during the pandemic due to cancelled events, fewer program registrants or decreased funding from other sources. 
  • Applicants must have a history of serving Coquitlam residents.  

Pandemic Response Grants – up to $10,000

  • For local non-profit organizations or community groups.
  • Intended to help groups develop projects or adapt existing programs that benefit Coquitlam residents affected by the pandemic or that otherwise mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 in the community. 
  • Grants may be used for salaries and wages, but operational costs such as rent or utilities are not eligible.  

Assessment and Criteria

Applying for a CSRP Grant does not guarantee funding. 

Applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis by a staff committee and assessed against these and other eligibility criteria listed in the CSRP Grant Application and Support Guide:

  • Organizations with current City funding agreements, or those who can balance their budgets without a CSRP grant, are not eligible.
  • Detailed financial information and post-grant reporting will be required of all applicants.
  • Priority will be given to applicants that clearly and fully describe how they meet the criteria of their selected grant stream.   
  • Funding will be limited to initiatives that serve Coquitlam residents. Regional programs may qualify, but funding will reflect only the demonstrated Coquitlam benefit.
  • Projects involving fundraising or other activities charging fees higher than before the pandemic are not eligible.

Application Process

  1. Begin by thoroughly reading the CSRP Grant Application and Support Guide for detailed eligibility criteria, application and reporting guidelines.

  3. Submit the completed application and supporting materials by email to communitygrant@coquitlam.ca.
