Calls for Proposals now Open in the Social Development Partnerships Program
June 8, 2021
In May, the Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development launched two calls for proposals through the Social Development Partnerships Program (SDPP). The two calls for proposals, for a total of up to $39 million over five years, are for projects to support financial empowerment and the social inclusion of vulnerable children and youth.
Eligible organizations can apply for up to $3 million in funding to support projects that focus on one of two objectives:
- Financial Empowerment: services and supports to help increase the financial wellbeing of low-income adults; or,
- Social Inclusion of Vulnerable Children and Youth: services and supports to help increase the social inclusion of children and youth who may be experiencing impacts to their physical and mental wellbeing due to social isolation
Eligible applicants include not-for-profit organizations, Indigenous organizations, and Provincial/Territorial entities, such as educational institutions, municipalities, and more. Please note, that organizations can apply for only one of the two calls for proposals. Prior to applying, I encourage you to review the applicant guides for more information on eligibility and the application process:
- Financial Empowerment--Applicant Guide
- Social Inclusion of Vulnerable Children and Youth--Applicant Guide
The call for proposals will be open until July 6, 2021.
