Grant Funding Available fot Family Support Networks

Call for Applications for the 2023-24 Capacity-Building Grants for Family Support Networks program is now open!  Deadline to apply is August 29, 2023. 

The Ontario Caregiver Organization is receiving applications for grant funding to support Family Support Networks (FSNs) in Ontario. The grant program is open to new and established Family Support Networks in Ontario that have members who are family members or unpaid caregivers of adults with a developmental disability.  Organizations that support and empower family-led Family Support Networks may also apply.  

These capacity-building grants are intended to support, strengthen and expand Family Support Networks across the province, making it easier for families and caregivers of adults with developmental disabilities to find peer support in their community, share information, and build connections for their own wellbeing and the people they care for.  This program is funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services.
