Grants to British Columbia registered charities and qualified donees for Coronavirus (COVID-19) response programs in eligible locations. Funding is intended for projects to support vulnerable populations, strengthen organizational and programmatic stability, and address root causes. Projects and/or activities must occur in the Comox Valley (School District 71) or be of direct benefit to the residents of the Comox Valley.

The focus for the 2021 COVID-19 Emergency Response Grants will remain on pandemic response and supporting those most impacted by the ongoing pandemic. Specifically, grants will support food security and homelessness initiatives, and children and youth. While still focused on supporting vulnerable populations, 2021 grants are intended to also contribute to the longer-term sustainability of the organization or program, as well as address root causes.

Applications need to pertain to at least one of the following criteria:

  1. Programs and activities intended to enhance “Child Welfare” interpreted in its broadest sense, which could reasonably include support to families with children who are experiencing unemployment, difficulty in accessing food, shelter and/or care due to workplace/school closures, etc
  2. Programs and activities offered by religious organizations and or churches intended to serve the broader community, especially our most vulnerable citizens
  3. Food security initiatives
  4. Homelessness initiatives
  5. General operating costs to deliver the above referenced programs and activities.
