The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) announces the newest grant recipients of the Resilient Communities Fund. This funding will help 1,146 organizations recover and build their resiliency from the impacts of COVID-19.
From the onset of the pandemic, the non-profit sector had to address many challenges, from meeting public health requirements to finding new ways of connecting with their communities. Program and service delivery had to be shifted and reimagined to meet demand and community need.
In 2020, OTF launched the Resilient Communities Fund to support Ontario’s non-profit sector as it rebuilds its capacity from the impacts of COVID-19. This year, OTF continues to support non-profits through this fund which includes flexible project outcomes and activities. Through the third round of the Resilient Communities Fund, $95.8M has been awarded to support 1,146 non-profit organizations. Explore the grants awarded list.
