Grants of up to $12,500 to Ontario nonprofit organizations and registered charities for improving existing projects in eligible regions. The purpose of funding is for projects to become more standard and consistent. The Funding Source seeks to fund projects that have occurred at least once in Brampton. Projects, programs and events must be publicly accessible and may involve more than one neighborhood or engage people throughout the city of Brampton.

When applying, consider how accessing a grant will improve processes, community access, or the quality of your offering as it begins to grow. This stream is designed to transition your project, program, or event from testing ideas to delivering a well-managed project. It is ideal for organizations who have completed at least one or two projects, and have a consistent team in place to complete this project.

The Developing Projects Stream supports projects that align with and advance one (1) of the following Council Priorities:

  • Brampton is a Mosaic - Celebrating Brampton’s diversity by more effectively engaging and communicating with diverse groups, supporting arts, culture and creative expression, and developing a holistic framework to embed diversity across the city.
  • Brampton is a Healthy and Safe City - Encouraging active and healthy lifestyles, focusing on community safety, improving social wellness and connectedness.
  • Brampton is a Green City - Environmental stewardship (naturalization, tree planting, invasive species removal, litter reduction), and environmental education and outreach.
  • Brampton is a City of Opportunities - Improving livability and prosperity by focusing on local education and employment opportunities, neighborhood services and programs, and job investment strategies.

For more about these priorities, see:
