Local Poverty Reduction Fund

-A +A

The Local Poverty Reduction Fund (the Fund) was announced in April 2015 and is now in its final year of awarding grants. The Fund is providing $50 million over six years to support innovative, local, community-driven solutions that measurably improve the lives of those most affected by poverty. The fund’s focus on measuring success – and the evidence that will be shared as a result – will help support local efforts to prevent and reduce poverty and to build a body of evidence of what works.  

The government has partnered with the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) on the Local Poverty Reduction Fund. OTF’s primary role is to provide  grantee engagement, and to issue, execute and oversee funding agreements with community organizations that are selected to receive funding.
