Community Initiatives Fund (CIF)
Annual Grants support programs and projects that enhance the healthy growth and development of children and youth, individual and community wellbeing, and/or nonprofit and community leadership. Annual grants support programs that are no more than 12 months in length and are not summer programs. Programs may be offered continuously throughout the year, may be for a defined time period (e.g., an 8 week program), or may be short-term projects such as a one-day training session.
Maximum of $25,000/local project
Maximum of $50,000/provincial project
CIF introduced new program guidelines in early 2018. Before completing your grant application, you are strongly encouraged to read through the guidelines to ensure your project and expenses are still eligible. The CGP guidelines provide information on CIF’s current funding themes and priorities, eligible applicants, application deadlines, grant amounts, the application process and review process, eligible and ineligible expenses, and other important notes.
