The Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Youth Opportunities Fund is offering one-time, two-year grants to Black-led and Black-focused organizations through the Economic Recovery and Resilience Fund.

Funding is available for projects that support Black children, youth and young adults and align with one Economic Recovery and Resilience Fund outcome. The three outcomes are copied below:

  1. Ensure that Black children and youth have the skills, knowledge, and supports they need to succeed in education and the job market of today and in the future.
  2. Ensure that Black youth and young adults are supported to find and keep meaningful, safe, and dignified work in line with their skills, potential, and career aspirations.
  3. Ensure that Black youth and young adults in Ontario are supported to succeed in entrepreneurship/business building and create jobs.

Grants will be awarded for projects of up to 2 years. Organizations can request up to $250,000, with a maximum of $125,000 per year.

All applicants must book a required pre-application coaching call before September 7, 2022, to be eligible to proceed to the application process, with a deadline of September 28, 2022, at 5 p.m. ET.
