The Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) aims to help communities across Canada build and improve community infrastructure projects so they can rebound from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. With a national investment of $500 million over two years, the Fund’s purpose is to support not-for-profit organizations, municipalities and other community groups, as well as Indigenous communities:
  • build new community infrastructure and revitalize existing assets
  • bring people back to public spaces safely as health measures ease
  • create jobs and stimulate local economies
Please find information on the CCRF which was just announced and will be administered by ACOA:
The Fund will provide support to:
  1. adapt community spaces and assets so that they may be used safely in accordance with local public-health guidelines
  2. build or improve community infrastructure to encourage Canadians to re-engage in and explore their communities and regions.
Please contact ACOA directly regarding questions related to this fund.
