Type of Program:



The Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) aims to help communities across Canada build and improve community infrastructure projects so they can rebound from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Comments on Funding:

CCRF contributions will be determined based on the minimum amount required to carry out a project and may represent up to 75% of total eligible costs.

Recipients could receive up to $750,000 per project across provinces. In order to reflect higher construction costs and a shorter construction season, recipients in territories may receive up to $1 million in territories.

RDAs may also contribute up to 100% funding for projects with Indigenous groups.
All contributions will be non-repayable.
