Deadline to Apply Extended for Funding for Municipalities or Regional Districts
Community-based organizations are not eligible to apply for these grants but are encouraged to partner with their local municipalities or regional districts.
Community Action Initiative has extended the deadline to submit applications for this funding opportunity. Please share this announcement with your local municipality or regional district!
In partnership with the Provincial Overdose Emergency Response Centre (OERC) and the Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions, we are offering funding for Community Wellness & Harm Reduction Grants.
Harm reduction aims to keep people and communities safe and to empower people with lived or living experience (PWLLE) of substance use to join service providers in determining the best interventions to reduce harms and increase individual and community wellness.
Funding is available for municipalities and regional districts who propose harm reduction projects or initiatives focused on a range of support services and strategies designed to enhance the knowledge, skills, resources and supports for individuals, families and communities to be safer, healthier and more inclusive. Collaboration with local community-based organizations, local First Nations communities and Indigenous service providers is encouraged.
Funding ranges from $15,000 to $50,000 per community as determined by identified need and size of municipality.
