Community Service Partnerships (CSP) funding provides ongoing support to Toronto’s not-for-profit community-based organizations to offer high quality and relevant services that respond to the changing needs of the community and strengthen the city’s well-being.

The ultimate outcome of the CSP program is for Torontonians to live in vibrant, equitable, inclusive, safe neighbourhoods, and communities where the needs of vulnerable people and communities are met.

CSP provides both core and program funding.

  • Core funding supports the not-for-profit sector to be resilient and responsive to diverse community needs by funding organizational/day-to-day operations; increasing access to programs/services, resources and space; and supporting organizational capacity building.
  • Program funding supports evidence-informed programs and services that address the needs of vulnerable people and communities by mitigating the effects of poverty; decreasing social isolation; increasing perceptions of safety; increasing pathways to services; increasing knowledge and skill development; and increasing public awareness about the issues facing vulnerable people and communities.
