The City of London invites local not-for-profit organizations and community groups to apply for its Multi-Year Grants (2024-2027) Program. With $2.3 million in funding available, the Multi-Year Grants Program provides financial support to London-based not-for-profit organizations and community groups to implement programs and services, with funding provided for up to four years.
Local not-for-profit organizations and community groups can apply to receive funding for programs and services operating within the City of London for London residents, including those related to counselling, mentorship, basic needs, social services, recreation, the environment, youth leadership and cultural activities; as well as programs supporting equity-denied groups, children, youth and older adults.
“This program is an investment in community, providing not-for-profit organizations and groups with opportunities to build the health and well-being of our neighbourhoods and our city," said Cheryl Smith, Deputy City Manager of Neighbourhood and Community-Wide Services. "By offering financial support over a four-year period, we are empowering community organizations to make a real difference in our community.”
All grant applications are assessed based on their alignment with the City’s Strategic Plan and demonstrated need for the project in the community, the cost and effectiveness of the project and the project’s contribution to the quality of life in the community.
Organizations that are not registered not-for-profits can still apply by partnering with a not-for-profit organization who will host their application.
Applications are being accepted until November 1 at 4:30 p.m.
