The Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) is a $350 million emergency funding program from the Government of Canada.
The fund is designed to help Canada’s most vulnerable populations during the COVID-19 crisis. The global pandemic has left no community untouched, and it is having a disproportionate impact on vulnerable Canadians who are less equipped to deal with its health, social and economic impacts.
ECSF will provide a much-needed boost to organizations on the frontlines, while we also continue our efforts to secure the funding and support required for the stabilization and recovery phases ahead.
Starting on May 19, CFC and participating community foundations are inviting qualified donees to apply for funding.
Please note the local deadline to apply for the Emergency Fund Support with Kenora Lake of the Woods Community Foundation is June 19th, 2020.
