The Ontario government says $ 750,000 is available to help communities across the province become more inclusive and accessible for people of all ages and abilities.
Applications for the 2023-24 round of Inclusive Community Grants opened today.
These grants provide municipalities, non-profit organizations, and Indigenous communities with up to $60,000 for local projects that will help older residents and people with disabilities participate in community life. This year, Ontario is prioritizing projects focused on improving opportunities for community engagement and those that support older adults to age and live at home with access to care.
“We know inclusive communities support independent, active living and help reduce social isolation,” said MPP Vic Fedeli.
Applications for Inclusive Community Grants are now open. Eligible organizations have until April 20, to submit their applications.
