Community Services Recovery Fund

The Community Services Recovery Fund was built to respond to the adaptation and modernization needs of charities and non-profits facing immediate and long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Fund will accept applications from Community Service Organizations, which means non-profit organizations, Indigenous Governing Bodies or Registered Charities located in Canada who provide services to communities in Canada. As they continue to serve their communities, this unique funding opportunity aims to support Community Service Organizations to adapt, modernize, and plan for the future.

Projects funded under the Community Services Recovery Fund will work within one of the Project Focus Areas below. Although some projects may touch on more than one Project Focus Area, eligible organizations are asked to select one focus area that best relates to the main intention of their project:

  • Investing in People:  Funding will support one-time projects that focus on how organizations recruit, retain, engage and support their personnel, including staff, volunteers and boards of directors.
  • Investing in Systems and Processes: Funding will support one-time projects that invest in the systems and processes involved in creating the internal workings of an organization’s overall structure.
  • Investing in Program and Service Innovation and Redesign: Funding will support one-time projects primarily focused on program and service innovation and redesign using information gained during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applications are now closed.
