OTF Resilient Communities Funding for Simcoe North - Dec 23/20

Today I was thrilled to announce on behalf of the Ontario government, that the following organizations will receive a combined total of $711,400 to rebuild and recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Recipients were advised of the success of their grant application earlier this month and include; Quest Art School, Georgian Bay Rowing Society, Camp Couchiching, Community Reach North Simcoe, La Cle d’la Baie en Huronie, Hospice Huronia, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 270, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orillia and District and Township of Ramara.  This grant is part of the first round of funding through the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s new $83-million Resilient Communities Fund.

Non-profit organizations are a crucial and valued part of any community, especially here in Simcoe North.  Countless people rely on their services every day, and even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, they still deliver.

For more information on the OTF’s Resilient Communities Fund, and for a full list of recipients, please visit the OTF website.

Ontario is supporting the recovery and rebuilding of the non-profit sector by investing $41M in 486 projects through the first round of Ontario Trillium Foundation’s new Resilient Communities Fund.
