Brampton is providing funding for local, non-profit organizations delivering vital programs and services to communities across the city.
The Brampton Advance Fund is a $600,000 community grant program that provides eligible businesses based in Brampton funding to provide programs and services that address community needs.
The grant is broken down into three streams, the first, the emerging stream, is accepting applications from October 4 to 29, and provides up to $5,000 in funding for new and innovative projects.
The second, the developing stream, is accepting applications from October 4 to November 29, and provides up to $12,500 in funding for programs that have run at least once in Brampton.
The third, the amplifying stream, is accepting applications from October 4 to November 29, and provides up to $25,000 in funding for programs that have run at least twice in Brampton.
Applications for all three streams will be open to registered charities, and incorporated non-profits, while the emerging stream will also be open to unincorporated non-profits.
Previous winners have included cultural associations, community service programs, and rehabilitation services, among others.
Businesses that will not be eligible for the grant include schools, organizations with political affiliations, religious groups, businesses funded by the City, and fundraising associations, among others.
Virtual information sessions will be available on October 7 for the emerging stream, October 14 for the developing stream, and October 21 for the Amplifying stream.
“I’m pleased to see another round of applications open for the Advance Brampton Fund and encourage all Brampton non-profit organizations to apply,” Harkirat Singh, City Councillor for Wards 9 and 10, and Chair for Corporate Services for the City of Brampton, said in a news release.
