Changes to the Fall 2021 Community Grants Program

CFKA Smart & Caring Community Priorities

We have refreshed our Smart & Caring Community Priorities. While we continue to be a 360-degree grant provider and distribute grants to all Fields of Interest (e.g. Environment, Heritage Preservation, Recreation, etc.) preference may be given to projects that align with the Smart & Caring Community Priority areas.

The Current Smart & Caring Community Priorities are to:

Build resilience in individuals, families, and communities by supporting initiatives such as those that:

  • Promote strong early childhood development (prenatal to 6)
  • Support youth in achieving success in education, employment, and life pursuits
  • Address mental health and substance use
  • Increase food security
  • Assist local charities to adapt to and recover from the pandemic

Increase belonging and wellbeing within our community by supporting initiatives such as those that:

  • Strengthen social connection and engagement to reduce loneliness and isolation
  • Foster community connection and cohesion by recognizing and celebrating diversity
  • Support the Truth and Reconciliation process
  • Connect and welcome newcomers to our community and help them access services to thrive in their new home
  • Amplify voices and participation of equity-deserving groups and commit to continuous learning and action surrounding anti-racism, equity, diversity, and inclusion through policies and practices

Other changes to the Fall 2021 Community Grants Program include:

  • Easier to complete forms
  • Easier to know which form to fill out: one for equipment, one for projects and programs (new or existing)
  • Emergency operational support for program delivery as the COVID–19 pandemic continues
  • Paper submissions are no longer required; application packages may be submitted through email (notify the Grants Coordinator if you do not receive a confirmation email within two business days)

Deadline for Application: Wednesday September 15, 2021, at 4:30 PM
