The Government of Canada’s $350 million Emergency Community Support Fund supports community organizations helping vulnerable people during the COVID-19 crisis. Community organizations may seek funds to undertake a wide range of activities and to serve a wide range of vulnerable groups.

Community organizations may apply for funds through either the Canadian Red Cross, Community Foundations of Canada or the United Way Centraide network. The right place to apply depends on the community organization’s type:
– Non-profit organizations may apply to the Canadian Red Cross’ national portal.
– Registered charities and other qualified donees may apply to the Community Foundations of Canada’s national portal OR to their local United Way Centraide (check the United Way Centraide Canada’s website for information on how to apply).
