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.
