Supporting Black Canadian Communities Initiative

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

The Government of Canada recognizes the contributions of Black Canadians and acknowledges the significant and unique challenges that Black communities face.That is why the government has been investing in Black-led non-profit organizations through the Supporting Black Canadian Communities Initiative (SBCCI).

SBCCI was created by the Federal Government through Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) to help increase the capacity of grassroots not-for-profit organizations serving Black communities in Canada.

Capacity building grants through the SBCCI are administered by three intermediary organizations: Black Business Initiative, Groupe 3737, and Tropicana Community Services. The initiative aims to provide funding through a fair and transparent process, and otherwise support Black community organizations across Canada to increase their organizational capacity in the areas of:

  1. Facilitating access to funding from a more diverse range of funding sources.
  2. Enhancing organizational governance to provide greater organizational stability and improved planning and oversight functions.
  3. Enhancing operational management effectiveness and efficiency.

This call for proposals will offer Black-led registered non-profit organizations serving Black Canadian communities the opportunity to apply for up to $45,000 for capacity-building initiatives. Details on the application process can be found on each intermediary’s website.

How to Apply

The second call for proposals for the Supporting Black Canadian Communities Initiative is now open through the intermediaries’ shared application portal. More information can be found on the intermediaries’ websites: Black Business Initiative, Tropicana Community Services, and Groupe3737.

Deadline to Apply

The deadline to apply for the funding is January 8, 2021. Applications submitted after the deadline cannot be considered unless general extension is provided.
