Federated Co-op is reprising its Co-op Community Spaces Program. In 2023, $1 million is available to support capital projects dedicated to recreation, environmental conservation, and urban agriculture. The program invests in local projects throughout the Prairies that will protect, beautify, and improve local spaces.
Since it started in 2015, the program has provided $11.5 million to 160 projects across western Canada in the communities served by local Co-ops. These include educational spaces, community gardens, and recreational facilities. Funding between $25,000 and $150,000 is available per project.
