Not-for-Profit Organizations Inivited to Apply for London Community Grants Program - 2019 Innovation & Capital Stream

Applications are now being accepted for the 2019 Innovation and Capital Stream of the London Community Grants Program.

A total of $495.543 is available in 2019 for combined Innovation and Capital projects. Registered not-for-profit organizations are invited to submit their applications by April 23, 2018.

"This allows us to serve Londoners immediate needs through so many amazing not-for-profit organizations already doing great work  in our community," said Mayor Matt Brown. "The Community Grants Program helps us strengthen our community, build a sustainable city, grow our economy and lead in public service, which are the four areas of focus for this Council."

Innovation Grans will be provided to projects or organizations that can demonstrate:

  • Proven or promising early stage innovations that need additional support to create the capacity and conditions to be effectively sustained
  • Creative new approaches to social innovation that engage multiple stakeholders in creative collaboration to improve system delivery, coordination, and/or generate new ideas

Capital Grants will be considered for the following purposes:

  • Purchase of Land and Buildings: Grants are made in this category only when the purchase is required for the immediate capital project
  • Construction Costs: Grants in this category will be for costs associated with new facilities or renovation costs associated with the provision of additional program/service space

An information session is scheduled for Wednesday, March 21, 2018 from 5-6pm at South London Community Centre (1119 Jalna Blvd). City staff will be on hand to assist with applications and answer any questions about the grant process.
