Apply for OTF Funding to Rebuild your Organization’s Resiliency

COVID-19 continues to have a significant impact on the non-profit sector and its ability to build resiliency, and support and serve communities across Ontario. The non-profit sector faces many challenges, including the need to adapt program and service delivery, generate revenue, meet changing community needs and address health and safety requirements.

COVID-19 recovery support is essential for non-profit organizations, Indigenous communities, and Municipalities to deal with ongoing needs for both them and their communities.

The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is investing in non-profit organizations that have been impacted by COVID-19 through the Resilient Communities Fund.

What is the Resilient Communities Fund?

This fund supports the recovery efforts of organizations impacted by COVID-19 and helps them respond with immediate, medium, and longer-term recovery projects.

Applicants can apply for a minimum of $10,000, and up to $200,000 with a maximum of $100,000 per year.

Application period is from March 9 until April 6, 2022 at 5 PM ET.

Resilient Communities Fund grants support projects that help rebuild an organization’s capacity, enhance their resiliency, and meet the changing needs of their communities. Projects should be focused on:

  • developing new approaches;
  • starting new activities;
  • adjusting strategies, or
  • planning for future challenges.

Funding is available for projects that support the medium to longer-term recovery efforts of organizations. Projects should also help them rebuild their capacity and resiliency, and support meeting the changing needs of their communities.
