Second round of pandemic recovery funds available in city

By Lindsay Advocate

Kawartha Lakes Council has approved a second round of applications for the Community Pandemic Recovery Fund (CPRF) to utilize the remaining funds from the first round. The funding is for programs and services that increase or maintain supports to residents in meeting their basic human service needs.

The balance of $49,162 that was not awarded in the first round in March will be made available to eligible organizations located outside the geographical boundaries for eligibility for the Lindsay CHEST Fund through a second application process of the Community Pandemic Recovery Fund, to a maximum of $7,500 per application.

The goals of the CPRF are to encourage the necessary collaboration and sharing of resources, foster the essential innovation of operations and practice, build capacity to foster long-term stability, and to establish intentional progressive planning.

Eligible organizations include non-profit and community service providers in the broader health and human services sector. Organizations must be an incorporated non-profit organization or registered charity.

Details on the application process and the application form is available on the municipal website. Applications will be accepted until 4 pm on Friday May 14 and then will be reviewed by an evaluation committee.

Notice regarding final funding decisions is expected to be released by June 4.
