The Canadian Center for Community Advancement (3CA) is again undertaking the RAYI micro grants project. This year’s project will offer 14 micro grants with per micro grant value of between $2,000 to $5,000. It is intended to fund youth-owned and youth-led projects and proposals. It is open to youth aged 15-30 whether they are part of a registered youth organization or an informal group and who want to implement an innovative idea in one of the following three project streams:

  1. Preserving the environment.
  2. Promoting civic and democratic engagement.
  3. Strengthening youth resilience.

The RAYI micro grants application opens May 1st. Applications will continue to be accepted and considered for funding until all fifteen micro grants are allocated. For further information about the RAYI micro grants project, review the project guide.
