The Kemptville Youth Centre is receiving $17,200 from the Ontario government to help this non-profit organization deliver vital services to the local community. The funding will be delivered through the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF), which is a provincial agency. Last year, OTF awarded $94.3 million to 1,238 projects in Ontario.
Steve Clark, MPP for Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes and Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, announced on behalf of the Ontario government that nine non-profit organizations will receive funding to rebuild and recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. These grants are from the OTF’s $83-million Resilient Communities Fund.
“Non-profit organizations are a crucial and valued part of any community, especially here in our area, and these organizations represent diverse activities and interests,” said MPP Clark.
The Resilient Communities Fund provides grants of up to $150,000 to eligible non-profit organizations to cover a broad and flexible range of needs, such as, mental and physical health and well-being supports for staff or volunteers, incorporating new health and safety processes, or purchasing new technology and personal protective equipment.
OTF will continue to offer the Resilient Communities Fund in 2021-22 to help non-profit organizations that have been impacted by COVID-19.
