The City of Toronto's Winter Activation Grant aims to provide funding for Business Improvement Areas, Community Not for Profit organizations and charity groups to animate their main streets with winter activities. Winter has always been traditionally slow for retail and tourism and this year will add additional challenges due to COVID-19.
The purpose of this grant is to support the local economy by celebrating art, culture and community by helping drive business to our main streets during the coldest months of the year. The grant also aims to advance equity and to include and benefit citizens, businesses and artists from every part of the city. For an application form, please contact [email protected].
