Community Funding Program
The Community Funding program invests in viable non-profit community-based organizations in order to sustain a strong social infrastructure of community services that supports equal access to the basics in the areas of health, recreation and social services.
The Community Funding program has three funding envelopes:
- Renewable Community Funding
- One-Time Non-Renewable Community Project Funding - Closed for 2018
- Major Capital Funding - Closed for 2018
Community Funding Program Background
The Community Funding Framework approved by Council February 8, 2006 governs all mechanisms for community funding to non-profit community-based organizations. This framework was developed in two phases. Phase 1 (approved by Council September 22, 2004) was implemented in 2005. Phase 2 (approved by Council February 8, 2006) established a funding policy that outlines the parameters of the Community Funding program.
On October 23, 2013 City Council approved The Community Funding Framework Update which outlined a Community Funding Major Capital Program for Community Health and Resources Centres in receipt of Renewable Community Funding; and changed the general eligibility criteria for recipients of Community Funding to include specific reference to “registered not-for-profits and/or registered charities”.
Community Funding Framework Review
Please note that a Community Funding Framework review is currently underway.
The goal of the review is to identify a way to enable the City to sustain a healthy social infrastructure through a funding program that meets existing priority needs, while at the same time, offers enough flexibility to address emerging needs.
We appreciate all the valuable feedback you have provided to the Community Funding Framework Review. The survey is now closed.
Our next step is to analyze the results. We will keep you informed as the project progresses.
Phase 1 of the Review will be completed in 2019. If you have any questions, require more information, or are interested in receiving updates, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
