Grants are partnerships or investments that help the City of Toronto achieve its social, economic and cultural goals for its residents. The City's goals are better achieved by supporting the work of organizations that are closer to the communities they serve.
The Community Service Partnerships (CSP) program supports a strong community based sector and facilitates access to services that improve social outcomes for vulnerable, marginalized and high-risk communities.
The Community Funding Investment Programs provide short-term grants to projects that contribute to the City's social, economic and cultural goals.
On this page you will find information about the following Investment Programs:
City Council approved a Special Category Reduced Rate (a subset of the Non-Residential Rate Structure Program) for organizations that receive publically donated goods. To be eligible to receive the reduced rate, your organization must apply and be approved for an exemption of Non-Residential fees, which will account for the portion of publically donated waste. The application process requires organizations to complete a mandatory self-assessment checklist and a Special Category Reduced Rate application form.
