The Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade is launching a second Call for Proposals for the Partnership Grant Program. The Ministry will hold information sessions on dates indicated in the application guidelines.
The 2014 Partnership Grant Program will continue to support building capacity of the not-for-profit sector focusing on three priority areas:
1. Program Evaluation: the Ministry is seeking project proposals that will increase capacity for program evaluation in the NFP sector;
2. Inclusive Leadership: the Ministry is seeking project proposals that will develop diversity/inclusion in leadership in the NFP sector;
3. Volunteer Management: the Ministry is seeking project proposals that will enhance capacity for Volunteer Management in the NFP sector.
The approach will be sector wide with the objective to support two and three year projects. Projects must make a substantive impact on improving the ability of not-for-profit organizations to advance their mandates and operate effectively in communities across Ontario.
In April 2010, the Government of Ontario launched the Partnership Project – a province-wide initiative to seek ideas and advice on ways to renew, streamline and modernize the relationship between the government and the Ontario not-for-profit sector. The Partnership Grant Program was designed to address one of the key recommendations - to build sector capacity by investing in projects that support intra-sector cooperation, communication and networks.
