Government of Ontario Investing $25 Million to Combat Hate in Communities
The Ontario government is investing $25 million in a new grant program to help faith-based and cultural organizations protect their communities against hate-motivated crime. The new Ontario Grant to Support Anti-Hate Security Measures for Faith-Based and Cultural Organizations will help eligible organizations cover expenses related to security and safety measures including enhancing security of their buildings and training staff on how to respond to hate-motivated violence.
Community organizations across Ontario work hard to bring communities together and provide a safe and inclusive gathering space to worship, practice their religion and celebrate their culture. We hope this grant will help to support the important work these groups are doing and empower communities most at risk of being targeted with hate-motivated crime feel safer and more secure.
Eligible organizations include charities and not-for-profit corporations that host, as a primary activity, regular gatherings of religious, spiritual or cultural significance at least once a month, and that rent or own indoor facilities used for these gatherings. The government will provide up to $10,000 in one time grants, based on the organization’s revenue.
