Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy
Government of Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan
United Way Simcoe Muskoka, in partnership with its Regional Advisory Board, invites organizations operating in rural and remote communities across Ontario to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) through the Reaching Home (RH) – Rural and Remote Communities COVID-19 funding stream.
Through the Government of Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan, decisive action is being taken 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 $2,596,209 will be allocated (pending funding availability) in rural communities across Ontario with a three (3) month funding period of January 1, 2021 to March 31, 2021. There is potential to extend projects to April 30, 2021, should extenuating circumstances arise due to COVID-19.
