Burlington’s Community Support Fund Provides Funding for Innovative Programs and Projects that Foster Community Connections During COVID-19.
COVID-19 Response – Community Support Fund
As part of the City of Burlington’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City is relaunching its existing community support programs into a streamlined program called the Community Support Fund (CSF). This umbrella program will join existing programs to provide financial support to residents and community groups who want to enrich and connect the Burlington community through sport, recreation, art and cultural experiences. The combined fund will simplify the funding process and make it easier for Burlington residents and community groups to access financial supports to enhance their community’s wellbeing. The Community Support Fund brings Love My Hood, the Community Development Fund, The Neighbourhood Matching Fund and the Arts and Culture Fund together temporarily during COVID-19.
This fund will help a variety of sport, recreation, art, and cultural events, programs and projects in Burlington neighbourhoods and communities, up to a maximum value of $5000 per application. It is a one-time per year funding program designed to recognize the importance of support Burlington’s communities during these challenging times. By providing access to funding, the City is looking for innovative ideas to connect and enhance our community; events/activities that can offer exciting and meaningful opportunities to strengthen and nourish community spirit.
