A reminder that there is one week left to apply for the Resilient Communities Fund

The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) has announced a new intake for the Resilient Communities Fund, designed to support non-profit organizations rebuild from the impacts of COVID-19.

This application period is November 9 – December 7, 2022, at 5 p.m. ET.

Eligible projects will need to benefit local communities and align with up to 3 Resilient Communities Fund project outcomes. Outcomes include:

  • Develop and implement medium to long-term strategic plans
  • Provide supports to staff and volunteers
  • Adapt or add new program delivery methods
  • Expand programs and services
  • Meet public health guidelines and purchase equipment

Grants can be up to 24 months in length. Requests can be between $10,000 and $200,000, with a maximum of $100,000 per year. (Applicants who received a Resilient Communities Fund grant from the April 6, 2022, deadline are not eligible to apply for this round.)

To support applicants, OTF will be hosting ongoing information sessions until December 2, 2022. If you have questions about your project’s fit with the Resilient Communities Fund, you can book a one-on-one coaching call with an OTF Program Manager.
