The Community Foundation of Mississauga is re-activating the Emergency Community Support  Fund alongside Community Foundations of Canada

The COVID-19 pandemic has been an unpredictable and challenging time for many, with some communities experiencing higher levels of vulnerability than others. Marginalized groups, youth, children and the elderly, essential workers, and newcomers are just some of the communities that have faced increased challenges. To provide emergency relief, the Government of Canada launched the Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) to help support communities made increasingly vulnerable by the pandemic.

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 here in Mississauga to ensure that our citizens are safe and healthy. Through the ECSF, we will be investing $560,000 towards local charities and qualified donees supporting people experiencing heightened vulnerability.

 Organizations can apply starting on October 5, 2020.  

The application deadline is October 30th at 11:59 PM (EDT)
