Anti-Hate Grant Program - July 28/20

July 28/20 - Today our government announced that it is investing $1.6 million over two years in the fight against systemic racism and hate through the creation of the Anti-Racism and Anti-Hate Grant program. This investment will support community-based anti-racism initiatives, focusing on anti-Black racism, anti-Indigenous racism, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.

This new grant program supports our government’s commitment to collaborate with communities on anti-racism initiatives, which includes increasing public awareness of the impact of systemic racism and hate.

Beginning in fall 2020, Ontario’s Anti-Racism Directorate (ARD) will collaborate with community groups to incorporate valuable insight about individual experiences and community needs into the design of the grant program.
