The City of Brampton has extended the deadline for its Advance Brampton Fund program, formerly called the Brampton Community Grant Program, until Feb. 3.
“(The program) supports community-based activities that will have a positive impact within Brampton — whether it’s at the neighbourhood level or at the city-wide level, we’re funding projects at varying scales that advance Brampton’s Council Priorities and align with our journey to 2040,” wrote the city in a release.
According to the city’s website, changes have been made to the grant program for 2020, adding a new program model that provides grants based on which stage a project is at.
The fund focuses on projects that emphasize city council’s 2018-2022 priorities, including city is a mosaic, healthy and safe city, green city, and city of opportunities.
“The Fund is designed to support Brampton-based organizations starting up, developing, and amplifying their projects, moving grantees toward project sustainability and a strengthened ability to partner, collaborate, and lead well-managed and meaningful work within the non-profit sector and Brampton community,” noted the release.
The city is also offering workshops to help organizations with their submissions through Ryerson University’s Chang School of Continuing Education, which has a campus located at city hall.
The new deadline to apply for a community grant is 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 3.
More information is available on the city’s website. Those interested in attending one of the workshops must register at www.brampton.ca.
