Condo and apartment boards in Toronto looking to advance their waste reduction goals can now apply for a new community grant of up to $25,000.
The available funding, part of the city’s long-term waste management strategy, will support innovative community-based projects that reduce residential waste and increase participation in Toronto’s waste diversion programs, such as Blue Bin recycling and Green Bin organics.
Priority for funding will be given to ideas that promote waste reduction in apartment buildings and condominiums, or that involve multilingual communities, equity-seeking groups and neighbourhood improvement areas.
Groups should be incorporated non-profit organizations or could partner with one. Eligible groups include resident, tenant and neighbourhood associations, condominium and apartment boards, business associations, service clubs, community organizations, registered charitable organizations, environmental organizations, school groups, clubs and councils.
The deadline to submit an application for a 2020 grant is March 9.
