New for 2021 - COVID19 Relief & Recovery Program

In recognition of the impacts on residents and businesses experienced in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Council took the significant step of allocating $250,000 in the 2021 budget to upcoming targeted recovery and relief programs. Township staff have been working with local agencies to identify the best way to get this funding into the hands of those most adversely affected by the pandemic.

In order to target those most in need of support without duplicating funding programs that are already in place, the Township has developed a program that will distribute funds through three overarching program streams. The three following programs will be administered by the Township, Frontenac Community Futures Development Organization (CFDC), and Southern Frontenac Community Services Corporation

Programs Administered by the Township

Support for Not-For-Profits and Community Groups – Allocation of $170,000 

The following two streams will be managed and administered by Township staff. Prior to applying for funding, please review the Community Grants - COVID19 Program Policy. 

Social Recovery Stream – seed funding for new events aimed at rebuilding community, health & wellness through activities and programs or to offset the increased costs of offering existing programs due to pandemic restriction and related distancing or material requirements.

The degree to which the organization operates/benefits South Frontenac will be an important criteria, as will proof of financial impact due to COVID-19. Financial statements will be requested and applicants must identify if they have accessed other funding sources.

The deadline to apply for either of the above streams is April 30, 2021 at 4:30 pm.
