18 May Support for Community Organizations Helping Canadians
Today, Minister Ahmed Hussen announced that the Government of 🇨🇦 is moving forward in investing $25 million over 5 years to provide assistance to Black community organizations.
Grassroots organizations will be able to apply for grants of up to $100,000 in late spring to build the necessary capacity and infrastructure they need to better serve Black Canadian communities.
“Today’s announcement is a direct result of the strong advocacy and sustained activism of the leadership of the Black and African Canadian communities across Canada. These investments will support new capital resources, research capacity and the creation of a new sustainable and engaged relationship between the diverse and dynamic people of African descent in Canada and the Federal Government.
Today’s announcement is a brilliant way to recognize the UN International Decade for People of African Descent now and for years to come.” – Adam Vaughan, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development
