Grant Description

Improve community buildings and spaces. Capital grants provide funding over one year to help organizations respond to the capital needs of Ontario’s communities.

Apply for a Capital grant to improve the infrastructure communities need to thrive. Capital grants support projects that provide people with suitable, accessible, and well-equipped buildings and spaces.

We support Capital grant projects that:

  • Improve access to community spaces, programs, activities and services, and facilitate community members’ full participation in the life of the community
  • Improve and build community spaces
  • Make programs better and more efficient
  • Make better use of technology

The Action Areas are broad areas that OTF invests in. For each Action Area, the Priority Outcome is the long-term change your project will contribute to achieving for Ontarians. The Grant Result is what your project will specifically accomplish to support the Priority Outcome.

Successful Capital grant applications should have a clear alignment with the chosen Grant Result.
