Sustaining Grant: After successfully completing five (5) years of operating funding from the City, City Council may consider placing an applicant into the Sustaining Grant category. This Grant is intended to support an organization with a proven track record. It is available on an ongoing basis in terms ranging from one (1) to five (5) years. Sustaining Grants are allocated to well-established non-profit organizations that work to provide a service to the City of Thunder Bay, its residents, and visitors.
The City of Thunder Bay has deemed those community, youth, and cultural organizations which receive sustaining grants to be an integral part of the City’s identity. These organizations fill a void in service provision in the City, positively affect the quality of life of the residents of the City, and/or generate an economic benefit for the City.
Youth Organizations - Provide youth services which may include, but are not limited to: recreation, health, jobs/volunteering, social justice, and mentoring.
