The Local Poverty Reduction Fund is now in its final year of awarding grants, with applications due this June 28th.
The Ontario Trillium Foundation will continue its role supporting the application process. Groups not already registered and verified eligible for OTF funding must register by June 7th. Details are available here.
OTF support will also be available through in-person outreach sessions and webinars. A schedule for these events can be found in the OTF Events Calendar. No in-person events are scheduled for London this year.
