Canada Healthy Communities Initiative
Online applications are now being accepted through the Community Foundation of Canada’s national portal:
This funding is part of the Government of Canada’s new $31 million Healthy Communities Initiative. This investment by the federal government will support community-led organizations in developing local, small-scale infrastructure projects that respond to the immediate needs arising from COVID-19, while building towards a more pandemic-resilient future.
Funding can be used for adapting public spaces, or for programming or services that respond to COVID-19 and serve communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
Deadline: March 9, 2021
This opportunity is open to incorporated not for profits as well as charitably registered organizations.
With funding between $5,000 and $250,000, the Healthy Communities Initiative aims to support local efforts to develop small-scale infrastructure solutions, programming and services for communities across Canada under the following streams:
- Creating safe and vibrant public spaces
- Improving mobility options
- Digital solutions
