COMMUNITY COMES FIRST

Your gift to the Rivers and Area Community Foundation advances the quality of life in our community.

Rivers and Area Community Foundation participates in the Healthy Communities Initiative

COVID-19 has seriously impacted our access and use of public spaces which are the glue to our communities. They are a big part of what makes communities safe, vibrant and connected.

The Healthy Communities Initiative is a $31 million investment from the Government of Canada to support communities as they create and adapt public spaces to respond to the new realities of COVID-19. We are proud to be working with Community Foundations of Canada (CFC) and the Government of Canada and other community foundations in Manitoba to provide $1 million of funding to support organizations who are showing creativity and resourcefulness in creating solutions that enable people to connect and access public spaces safely while still respecting public health measures.

Application Process

Organizations can apply to the Healthy Communities Initiative starting February 9, 2021, at 1:00 PM EST through March 9, 2021, at 5:00 PM PST.

Visit canadahealthycommunitiesinitiative.ca to find out more about how to apply, explore resources for applicants and sign up for community mobilization sessions.

Please note that no AGM was held for 2020 due to the Provincial Health Regulations in place because of COVID-19.
