Grants of up to $15,000 to Ontario nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for initiatives that benefit local communities. Funding is intended to support programs, activities, and services, as well as capital projects and general operations. Eligible applicants are located in and serve the City of Stratford. Grants are available for both one-time projects and for multi-year requests.

The City of Stratford has established the Community Grants Program to:

  • Improve the wellbeing of individuals, neighbourhoods and Stratford as a whole by directing City grant funding to eligible organizations that can demonstrate the greatest need in the community while supporting the Council’s strategic priorities.
  • Diversify the availability of activities available to all residents of our community.
  • Contribute to enhancing the quality of life in our community.
  • Through this support, it is hoped that other funding may be leveraged, and participants and volunteers can be supported, attracted and retained.
  • Ensure that the process to review and allocate grant funding is transparent, consistent and achieves the optimal impact for the investment provided.
