Funding opportunities available for community service providers in response to COVID-19

Whitby, Ontario –The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented time in Durham Region and, as a result, many residents are experiencing new and unique needs.

In response to this need, the Region of Durham has convened a Durham Region COVID-19 Funders’ Table—which includes the United Way, Durham Community Foundation, the Red Cross, local area municipalities and the Region of Durham. The table works to identify the most pressing needs in the region based on data, and to ensure that community funding allocations are well co-ordinated. These funding opportunities are available to qualified service providers, including those organizations that are providing help to our most vulnerable Durham Region residents or those who have otherwise been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Organizations serving these vulnerable populations can learn more about the funding opportunities and how to apply for them by visiting

The Region of Durham has also compiled a listing of available resources to support vulnerable and marginalized individuals in the community impacted by COVID-19. Residents who are worried about their income, shelter, food security, mental health, or transportation, are encouraged to visit for assistance and valuable information.
