2023 Community Organization Investment Funding Increased – Applications Now Open

Applications are open for the 2023 Community Organization Investment, a five-year initiative as part of the Community Benefits Plan. 

In its first three years, $300,000 (CDN) has been invested in 26 local initiatives. Year after year, the project has received applications that have exceeded the annual funding envelope of $100,000 (CDN). Following consultation with community partners, the project team has increased the annual investment to $200,000 (CDN) for the remaining two years of the initiative, with each community to receive $100,000 (CDN).

The funding is available to registered non-profit or charitable organizations located in or serving Sandwich/west Windsor and Delray/Southwest Detroit communities in Canada and the US. Eligible organizations can submit funding applications ranging from $1,000 to $25,000 (CDN) for events, programming and infrastructure improvements that will benefit the neighbourhoods closest to the project. 

Applications will be accepted until 4:00 p.m. on January 25, 2023.

Applications will undergo a thorough review process and will only be considered for funding if eligibility requirements are met. Learn more and apply now!
