The Community Boards in Action Project was a two-year project (2014-16) funded by the Vancouver Foundation that involved six communities – Prince George, Victoria, Cowichan Valley, Sunshine Coast, Kelowna and Vancouver.
In each of these communities, a local group of board members worked to develop a proposal for a collaborative project. A lead agency in each community directly supported the project and administered the funding locally.
These projects took a number of different forms. Some communities used the seed grant from Board Voice to leverage other funding for their projects.
The projects fit into one or more of these four categories:
- Interagency Collaborations
- Improved Governance
- Enhanced Community Networking
- Enhanced Community Understanding of Social Services
