Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy
Rural and Remote (Ontario)
THE CALL FOR APPLICATIONS IS NOW CLOSED (2022-2023)
The Call for Applications has closed and our assessment process will now begin. Our Regional Advisory Board will review all applications over the next month, and funding notification will be issued to all applicants by the end of May. Thank you for your interest in Reaching Home.
United Way Simcoe Muskoka, in partnership with its Regional Advisory Board (RAB), invites organizations operating in rural and remote communities across Ontario to submit applications for funding consideration.
The Government of Canada is taking decisive action to help communities address the impacts of the pandemic among people experiencing, or at risk of homelessness, and to provide additional support to the homeless-serving sector during this period.
A total of $1,634,757 will be available to support the needs of individuals and families who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness, including those that support culturally appropriate programming for Indigenous individuals and families.
Projects must take place during the funding period of June 2022 to March 31, 2023.
Please review the Application Guidelines found here, as well as the Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) ‘Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy Directives’ found here before submitting an application.
