To celebrate our 40th anniversary, CHF BC offered member housing co-ops a $4,000 grant focused on environmental sustainability. Eligible projects included greening initiatives, climate change adaptation, and more.
We received more than a dozen applications that highlighted co-op creativity. Applications were evaluated based on a range of criteria, and we had the challenging task of selecting one co-op recipient. We’re happy there was such a response to our sustainability initiative.
CHF BC and the Sustainability Grant Committee are pleased to announce that Granville Gardens Housing Co-operative in Richmond B.C. is the recipient of our 2022 Sustainability Grant.
The co-op’s project is to install a heat pump in its community hall and provide shade over an outdoor pergola to create a cooling area for members during hot months of the year.
The 94-unit co-op was built in 1982. Apart from the community hall, it also has a playground and a fenced basketball/ hockey/ playing area.
We’re excited to see the project unfold and hope that this inspires other co-ops to pursue their own sustainability initiatives.
