The District of Muskoka (District) is pleased to announce the launch of the 2021 Muskoka Community Grant program on the Engage Muskoka Platform.
The District supports the enhancement of community well-being with a focus on improving a positive quality of life for our most vulnerable population. One way of helping to achieve this goal is through a few different community-funded programs.
Earlier this year, the Muskoka Community Grant Program kicked off with Social Services Relief Fund grant opportunities, this current round of grant funding opportunities is focused on the Pay it Forward (PIF) and Community Enhancement (CE) Fund programs.
The PIF Community Investment Grant Program has been available to Grassroots Muskoka Community Groups since 2012 and offers grants of up to $2,500. Grants are awarded to projects that fill a strategic need in the community, enhance community support and leadership, and create positive change.
The CE Fund is available to Non-Profit Community Organizations. The program will offer grants up to $10,000. Grants will be awarded to groups that address poverty reduction; food security; housing and living conditions; education and training opportunities; volunteer and job development; and citizen engagement.
The Pay It Forward and Community Enhancement Fund application is now available at the following link: 2021 Muskoka Community Grant Application. The application will remain open until October 27, 2021, and will close at 4:00 p.m.
