Community Grants

We believe that communities are the experts at identifying their greatest needs. Trans Care BC is currently meeting with communities from across the province to understand current services, identify local needs and explore opportunities to work together at finding creative solutions to provide supports closer to home.

Trans Care BC’s goal is to build capacity of peer and community support services across the province – one way we are starting this is through funding opportunities to pilot and evaluate innovative and creative solutions that are locally-informed and community driven.
