Community organizations are invited to apply to the Halton Region Community Investment Fund (HRCIF), which supports a wide range of non-profit health and social service programs and initiatives that enhance the health, safety and well-being of Halton residents. Approximately $1 million is available for new grants in 2020.
Funding is provided in single and multi-year grants through two categories:
- Category One: one-year of funding up to $30,000 to non-profit, charitable or unincorporated community organizations for short-term, small capital and/or innovative projects.
- Category Two: up to three years of funding to charitable organizations for programs and initiatives.
Applications for HRCIF funding must focus on supporting vulnerable residents in our community. The HRCIF encourages organizations to submit proposals that demonstrate collaborative approaches to address community needs and is aligned with Halton’s overall approach to community safety and well-being planning.
The deadline to apply to both funding categories is November 1, 2019 at 2 p.m.
Community organizations interested in learning more about HRCIF and the application process can attend an information session on September 25 or October 1. To register for these sessions and for HRCIF guidelines and application forms, visit the HRCIF webpage or call 311.
