Poverty Reduction Strategy Office and Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF)
For More Information
Please visit the program’s website for further information.
The Fund is a $50 million, six-year initiative created to support innovative, community-driven projects that measurably improve the lives of those most affected by poverty.
The Local Poverty Reduction Fund provides funding to organizations and communities to support and evaluate their poverty reduction initiatives, create partnerships and build a body of evidence of programs that work for Ontarians living in poverty.
By supporting projects in communities across the province, Ontario aims to harness innovative ideas from local, community-based approaches and establish new ways of tackling poverty, rooted in evidence.
Using the evidence gathered from these projects, the government will work to apply best practices across the province and focus on funding programs that are proven to work and that can expand over time.
Learn more about the 2015 round of the Fund and the 41 organizations and projects that received funding.
