The Aboriginal Community Capital Grants Program (ACCGP)

NOTE: Please DO NOT submit your applications through Grants Ontario for this application round. Applicants should use the attached application form and email them directly to Amy Packwood at amy.packwood@ontario.ca


The Aboriginal Community Capital Grants Program (ACCGP) is an Ontario government program designed to promote Indigenous self-reliance by funding community capital Projects that provide a delivery point for community services and business activity. The Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation (MIRR) administers the program.

The program supports construction or renovation/retrofitting Projects of community, learning, and/or business facilities by providing funding for three Project Stages in the facility development process:

  • Feasibility study completion;
  • Design completion; and
  • Construction/ Renovation/Retrofitting.

Eligible applicants may submit one application per Project Stage per year. Eligible applicants may receive funding in each Project Stage once over a five-year period.

The ACCGP has a competitive application process and a limited number of awards.

The ACCGP funds the development of community capital Projects that contribute to the building of a healthy social base and support economic participation in Indigenous communities both on and off reserve.

The objectives of the ACCGP are to:

  • Support specific Indigenous infrastructure projects across Ontario through the provision of capital grants; and
  • Support Indigenous communities in realizing cultural, social, and economic development objectives.


The application period is now closed.
