The Non-Profit Recession Watch blog has been developed by ReStructure Non-Profit Consulting (www.restructure.ca) as a means to provide leaders of non-profit organizations with a central repository of information on the recession as well as strategies, tips, and resources to manage the impact of the recession on the organizations they lead. Information relating to the recession and its impact on Canada, US and UK will be updated daily in the "Recession Watch Data & Informaiton" sections below, and blogs will be written to provide information on how the recession has impacted the non-profit sector specifically. Please feel free to share information, news and resources with me - Betty Ferreira at blog [at] restructure.ca.

Ontario nonprofits encouraged to apply for infrastructure stimulus funding -- August 4, 2009

This update is directly taken from the Charity Village - Village Vibes eNewsletter

Ontario not-for-profit organizations interested in upgrading their infrastructure can now apply for funding through the federal government's Stimulus Fund.

The Government of Canada will contribute up to one-third of eligible project costs, and in exceptional cases up to half of eligible project costs, with the funding being matched by the Province of Ontario. Priority will be given to the rehabilitation of existing infrastructure, but new construction will be considered provided it can be fully completed by March 31, 2011.

Eligible project categories include: temporary housing structures, community centres, community services, and cultural infrastructure. Applications are due by August 18, 2009. For more information, visit: www.buildingcanada-chantierscanada.gc.ca.
