Six community organizations awarded funds under Round Two of Community Pandemic Recovery Fund

Additional funds granted to six community organizations involved in pandemic recovery in Kawartha Lakes

On June 15, 2021, the second round of funding under the Community Pandemic Recovery Fund (CPRF) was adopted by Council. The Fund was established in January 2021 and the first round of funding totalling $245,000 was awarded in March. The purpose of the funding is to provide support for programs and services that assist residents in meeting their basic human service needs.

The second round of funding was approved by Council in April and the successful applications are listed below. All six applications totalling $42,500 in requests were recommended to Council by the Evaluation Committee.

“We are thrilled that these community organizations were able to access the second round of funding. Coming out of the pandemic, their work will continue to be a critical lifeline in the health, safety and well-being of residents. It will benefit people of all ages, from children to seniors. We are grateful to Council for supporting this funding,” commented Heather Kirby of Kawartha Lakes Food Source, Co-chair of the Community Pandemic Recovery Task Force.

The balance of CPRF funds not awarded ($6,662.48) under the Community Pandemic Recovery Fund will be returned to the City Reserve.
