Milton makes $425,000 available for community organizations


Published May 17, 2023 at 2:52 pm

An extra $175,000 will be available for local groups applying for the 2023 Milton Community Fund Program.

The Milton Community Fund supports not-for-profit organizations whose initiatives add to the quality of life within the community or enhance Milton’s image.

Organizations providing artistic, cultural or recreational programs and services that benefit the community will be given funding consideration.

The Community Fund provides much-needed funding to local community groups and not-for-profit organizations that bring people together and enhance the quality of life for Miltonians,” said Mayor Gord Krantz.

“The Town of Milton is committed to supporting initiatives that connect the community, build sustainable partnerships, and make Milton A Place of Possibility.”

This year, Milton Council increased the available funds to $425,000, a funding increase of $175,000 from last year.

The Milton Community Fund was established in 2001 to distribute a portion of the funds received from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (Woodbine-Mohawk Park).

Over the last two decades, more than $7.3 million has been distributed to a wide range of not-for-profit community organizations.

Last year, Milton Council approved the distribution of $207,847 in grants to support 25 organizations.

Organizations unable to accept funding from the OLG, can contact Town staff for more details, as there are alternate funding sources available.

Applications will be accepted until Sept. 11, 2023, for activities and initiatives occurring in 2024. Applicants will receive a decision by January 2024.
