Today, the Ontario Trillium Foundation announced the second round of Resilient Communities Fund grants to support rebuilding the capacity of non-profits across Ontario.
Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries announced the new Resilient Communities Fund grants.
The non-profit sector continues to face many challenges due to the impacts of COVD-19, including closure of non-essential services, the need to adapt program and service delivery, and challenges generating revenue due to loss of attendance.
Through the second round of the Resilient Communities Fund, the Ontario Trillium Foundation is supporting 559 non-profits with $42M in funding. Organizations will use the funding to buy air purifying systems, personal protective equipment, install room dividers and plexiglass, and improve digital infrastructure to pivot programs and services to online delivery. This investment is in addition to the first round of Resilient Communities Fund grants, with a total investment of $83M in 1,045 non-profit organizations across Ontario.
“Non-profit organizations play an essential role in our province – they keep us connected, active and engaged, they provide job and volunteer opportunities, and ensure that the needs of communities are met,” said Katharine Bambrick, Chief Executive Officer, Ontario Trillium Foundation. “These new Resilient Communities Fund grants will support organizations in their own rebuilding and recovery, and we are pleased to provide continued support through these grants.”
