The Ontario government has announced it is investing $105- million to support arts and culture, heritage, tourism, sport and recreation and Indigenous communities that either operate facilities for or deliver experiences or programs to the public. The funding is being delivered by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and will target operational and capital funding needs.
The COVID-19 pandemic and economic shut down has had an overwhelming impact on the arts and culture, heritage, tourism, sport and recreation sectors. These sectors are critical to the social and economic fabric of Ontario and its communities and to support their broader recovery, the Ontario Government is investing $105-million through this fund.
Application resources and eligibility requirements were released on March 25. Funding for the operations will be accepted beginning March 31. The submission deadline is April 28 at 5 pm.
The Capital stream funding will be available later in 2021. Learn more on the Ontario Trillium Foundation webpage: https://otf.ca/news/government-ontarios-community-building-fund.
