Eligibility for Funding in Lanark County
Call for Proposals and Investment Opportunities
Select a region:
The 2020 Call for Proposals process launched on January 8th 2020 and closes on Wednesday February 19th at 1:00pm. The process is open to all local community service agencies who demonstrated results and who are aligned to our priority goals.
The Call for Proposals (CFP) application process is available for any non-profit and charity serving Lanark County and Smiths Falls who is seeking funding. This is part of our on-going effort to ensure we are meeting the needs of our communities and that the generous donations from our supporters are invested in projects that will assist those most in need.
2018 marked the first time that the new online portal was used for accepting applications, which built on the Community Impact Grant (CIG) policy of 2014. This collective impact approach encourages organizations to work together on vital projects that address a demonstrated local need and align with one or more of our three focus areas: All That Kids Can Be, Poverty to Possibility, Healthy People, and Strong Communities.
Our priority goals within these focus areas include our work with children during critical hours after school and youth homelessness under All That Kids Can Be; Beginnings & Transitions under From Poverty to Possibility; and Successful Aging and Strong Neighbourhoods under Health People, Strong Communities. New this year is the opportunity for applicants to include aspects of mental health in their approach to solving community issues. The sixth priority goal, Transportation, is still under review in order to take into consideration current activities and changes within the sector.
