Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF)

Receive up to $750K to $1M in Grant Funding.

The Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) is designed to support communities that have been hit hard by the pandemic with a two-year initiative that offers $500 million in national infrastructure funding. Communal spaces, such as farmers’ markets and parks, are strong examples of structures that promote a well-balanced society. CCRF is an important step in getting Canadians back into social public settings safely and effectively.

Applicants have been asked to submit their projects before July 23, 2021, for the scheduled intake stream. However, most Regional Development Agencies (RDAs) are offering a continuous intake stream should there be outstanding funding. In this case, funding will be allocated until all funds have been committed.

The program is being provided through two streams which are separated by application timeline: (1) a scheduled intake stream and (2) a continuous intake stream.
