Local charities, non-profits and Indigenous groups that have faced new struggles due to the pandemic, can apply for funding to help them recover.
Cheryl Gallant, the Member of Parliament for Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke, says the federal government is now accepting applications for the Community Services Recovery Fund.
Groups have until February 21 to apply. They can reach out through Gallant’s website to get the details.
Successful projects could receive anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 in funding.
The fund is designed to support one-time projects that focus on service innovation and re-design based on information gained during the COVID-19 pandemic. It can also support one-time projects that focus on how organizations recruit and retain staff and volunteers.
Gallant says that “now more than ever, non-profits and charities are playing a key role in addressing problems faced by all communities.”
