Centre Community Funds

Centre Community Funds

The Centre for Advancing the Interest of Black People ("The Centre") has established Centre Community Funds to help support tenants or tenant groups who need resources for community initiatives or projects.

Want to get involved in your community? Have an idea for a project or initiative that responds to the CABR Strategy? 

Tenants and tenant groups can apply for Centre Community Funds to get resources that address anti-Black racism and respond to the CABR Strategy. All applications will be reviewed by members of the Interim Funding Tables and the Tenant-Staff Oversight and Advisory Board.

Who can apply for the Centre Community Funds?

All Toronto Community Housing tenants can request resources for projects and initiatives to respond to the CABR Strategy's eight-point plan. When there are funding requests from their building or townhouse, the member of the Tenant Action Fund or the Tenant-Staff Oversight and Advisory Board cannot participate in the assessment of those applications. Any tenant found to be misappropriating funds will be ineligible to apply for future resources.

Applications for the Tenant Action Funds are now open. Download a copy of the Centre Community Funds toolkit (PDF) for more information. 

What is the process to apply for Centre Community Funds?

Once you submit your application form, members of the Centre's Tenant-Staff Oversight and Advisory Board and the Tenant Action Fund Tables will review and approve requests made by tenants and tenant groups.
