Revenue Recovery Grant

The Revenue Recovery Grant was offered in the spring of 2022 to support local non-profit organizations that have identified a loss of expected revenue in 2021 or 2022 that was a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The goal of this grant was to offset some of the unanticipated financial challenges faced by Coquitlam-serving organizations due to cancelled events, a decrease in funding from other sources, or a decrease in expected numbers of program registrants. Other reasons for lost revenue may be considered, but must clearly be a direct result of COVID-19. 

The Revenue Recovery grant intake has now closed. Applicants can expect to hear the results of their application in May 2022.

If you have questions about the grant or would like to speak to someone about your application, please email the Grant Coordinator
