2018-20 Safer and Vital Communities Grant

2018-20 Safer and Vital Communities Grant

Deadline for applications is January 22, 2018

How to apply

Ontario is now accepting applications for the 2018-20 Safer and Vital Communities Grant. We are investing up to $1.71 million under this grant program over the next two years.

Applications are open to community-based, not-for-profit incorporated organizations, groups sponsored by incorporated organizations, and First Nation Chiefs and Band Councils.

The theme for the 2018-20 Safer and Vital Communities Grant is “creating a safer Ontario through community collaboration”. We are seeking applications that focus on bringing together different sectors to address local priority risks through collaboration and partnership. Applicants will be required to partner with their local police service and at least one organization in a sector different from their own. The grant program will not cover expenses related to an organization's ongoing operational costs. It is intended to support the development or implementation of new projects.

Successful applicants for the Safer and Vital Communities Grant are expected to be announced in May 2018.

If you wish to apply for the Safer and Vital Communities Grant, or if you have any questions, please contact Fionne Yip, Community Safety Analyst, Program Development Section, at: Fionne.Yip@ontario.ca or call 416-314-0206.
