We will confirm within 10 business days whether your registration has been accepted and you are eligible to apply. We cannot guarantee registrations will be verified in less than 10 business days. Organization registration is required before the grant application is accessible.

Register your organization
Before you begin a grant application for the Ontario150 Community Capital Program, you must first register your organization.

View the OTF Registration Checklist.

Registration happens in two parts. First, enter the basic information about your organization. This part must be done in one sitting. Once submitted, OTF will send you an email with your user ID and temporary password. The first time you login to the applicant portal, you will be asked to change this password. In the second part of your registration, you will enter more detailed information about your organization including board details and financials. This may be done over multiple sessions.  

Once your registration is verified, OTF will email you confirmation that you can begin a grant application for the Ontario150 Community Capital Program and other OTF grants.
