Call for applications: Two streams to apply for Emergency Funding for Qualified Donees Responding to COVID-19 and serving vulnerable populations.
Emergency Community Support Fund: With COVID-19 cases increasing in many communities, and a continuous call for emergency relief, the ECSF will reopen with a second round of funding, providing much-needed assistance to charities and non-profit organizations serving communities experiencing vulnerability. The Government of Canada is flowing this funding through Community Foundations of Canada, United Way Centraide Canada and the Canadian Red Cross. We are proud to be working with CFC and the Government of Canada to deliver funding locally in Nelson, Kaslo, Salmo, Slocan and RDCK Areas D, E, F, G, H to ensure that our citizens are safe and healthy. Through the ECSF, we will be investing $50,000 towards local charities and qualified donees supporting people experiencing heightened vulnerability. Organizations can apply starting on October 5, 2020.
