Investing $83 million in grants to help non-profit organizations rebuild and recover from the impacts of COVID-19
Royal Canadian Legions, food banks, and child and youth programs across Ontario have been working tirelessly throughout this pandemic to support those who need it most. That’s why our PC government is investing $83 million in grants through the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) to ensure they can continue their vital work as they recover from COVID-19.
The OTF’s Resilient Communities Fund will provide grants of up to $150,000 to help eligible non-profit organizations rebuild and recover from the impacts of COVID-19. The fund will also provide grants to support capital needs, such as renovations and facility updates, to meet the changing needs of the communities they serve.
“I am proud of the hundreds of volunteer organizations and thousands of volunteers who have stepped up over the last few months and shown the Ontario spirit in caring for others through these difficult times,” said Doug Ford, MPP for Etobicoke North and Premier of Ontario. “Our local non-profits, including our local Legion branches and food banks, are the bedrock of our communities and their work will be absolutely critical in helping people to rebuild their lives as we restart our economy and reopen the province.”
Royal Canadian Legion branches and other non-profit organizations can apply for a broad and flexible range of needs, such as mental and physical health and wellbeing supports for staff or volunteers, identify new health and safety processes or purchasing of new technology and personal protective equipment.
While we work towards recovery, our PC government is proud to support programs, like the OTF Resilient Communities Fund, that are making a positive contribution in communities across Ontario.
