Non-profit organizations play an important role in communities across the province and are vital to Ontario’s economic recovery. That’s why, today, Minister MacLeod announced the Ontario government is providing nearly $41 million to help 486 non-profit organizations across the province to rebuild and recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
These grants, of up to $150,000 to eligible non-profit organizations, are the first round of funding through the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s new $83-million Resilient Communities Fund. COVID-19 has created a ‘triple threat’ of health, economic and social crises in Ontario, and this funding will help non-profits adapt to those challenges and ensure that they can provide the best service to those who need it the most.
As we work towards the province’s economic and social recovery, supporting programs like the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Resilient Communities Fund will make a real difference in the lives of individuals and families.
