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.

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.
