Healthy Communities Initiative: $31 million in funding for public spaces
The Healthy Communities Initiative is a $31 million investment from the Government of Canada to transform public spaces in response to COVID-19.
"Public spaces are the glue to our communities: they enable a feeling of belonging, of social cohesion and encourage our sense of collective identity. COVID-19 has seriously constrained our access and use of these spaces in communities across Canada. Impacts of the virus have also been extraordinarily uneven, underscoring inequalities across communities and disproportionately impacting those who are already experiencing vulnerability as a result of systemic inequalities."
Funding will be provided to a broad range of organizations, including local governments, charities, Indigenous communities and nonprofits, for projects, programming and services that help communities. You have until March 9, 2021 to apply and submit your request.
