About Project Robin Hood

What is Project Robin Hood?

Project Robin Hood is a participatory budgeting program that offers a total of $100,000 in smaller grants of $20,000 for community ideas, projects or events that bring people together and build better neighbourhoods. 

If you have ever had a great idea to make your community more vibrant, safe and connected Project Robin Hood can help make it happen by providing funding, support and connecting you with like-minded individuals.

How does it work?

Spread the word and get together a team of people who can help you bring your project to life. You can do that by speaking to friends, family and people in the community.

Once you’ve developed your idea, you will need to pitch it to the people by submitting an online application. It involves providing a brief description or sales pitch of the project and a simple budget. The community will then vote online to decide which projects they would like to see happen.

If you are successful, that's when the fun begins!  You'll get to work together to make your idea into reality with the City supporting you every step of the way. Your project team will have two years to finish the project.

Project Robin Hood rounds happen every two years and the next round will be in 2021.
