Spirit of Coquitlam Grant Program

Funding in projects that are focused on initiatives that enrich the community

Community enrichment

Community spirit is high in the City of Coquitlam. Each year, the City uses a portion of its share of provincial gaming revenue generated at the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver to provide support for not-for-profit organizations in the community through the City’s Spirit of Coquitlam Grant program. In spring 2016, 22 projects received a total of $200,529 in funding. These projects focused on events, celebrations and sports hosting applications, as well as initiatives that enrich the community.

Since 2002, the City of Coquitlam has awarded over $7.56 million to approximately 189 different community organizations as part of the program.
