About Grants

Community organizations receiving City grants work directly with the people they serve and deliver services effectively, efficiently and with a great degree of community acceptance. All applicants must meet a set of strict criteria to be considered eligible for a City of Toronto grant.

Core Values

The City of Toronto's grant policy is guided by core values that ensure fairness and equity in all funding allocations.


Each grant program identifies specific criteria but all will be consistent with the City's objectives, respond to financial need and support not-for-profit organizations.

City of Toronto support

For each of its grants programs, City staff are available to help with the application process and other issues that may arise.
