OTF Announces new Deadline for Projects with Provincial Impact

The Ontario Trillium Foundation has announced a new deadline for projects with provincial impact. If your project has a broad geographical reach and impact, then you may want to apply to the new deadline.

The deadline for projects with provincial impact is September 27, 2017, and organization registration is September 6, 2017.

What is a project with provincial impact?

Projects with provincial impact are those that reach a minimum of three catchments, or two if one catchment is in the North (that includes the Northwestern – Algoma, Cochrane, Manitoulin, Sudbury – Muskoka, Nipissing, Parry Sound, Timiskaming catchments).

The criteria for this program is the same as for the Grow Investment Stream, save and except for the scope, reach and impact of the project.

What does that mean?

The amount, terms, types of costs funded and guidelines for projects with provincial impact are outlined in the Guide for the Grow Investment Stream.

The major difference is that projects with a broader geographical reach and impact should apply for funding in September 27, 2017 by 5 PM ET.

This is an additional deadline for projects with provincial impact. The June 28, 2017 Grow application deadline remains the same.
