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.
