The Community Crisis Response Fund provides financial assistance for projects that address a specific violent incident/crisis in a community and contribute to community healing. The fund has two streams: General and Youth-Led.

These funds are being established to support applicants as part of the City’s COVID-19 response effort. This time-limited funding is available to fund projects for up to a six-month period or as amended with direction from the Medical Officer of Health.

There is a funding limit of $3,000 per request. Projects must meet all eligibility criteria to be considered for funding and your application will only be assessed under the fund stream that it is submitted.
