Investments in community and social programs help residents

Investments in community and social programs in York Region helped more than 78,000 residents with low to moderate income to enjoy a better quality of life. 

The Community Investment Fund (CIF) supports non-profit agencies for the delivery of community services that meet the needs of residents living with low and moderate income. Investments are targeted to fund community-based programs and services that complement and enhance the Region’s core community and health services.

The Region allocated $5.5 million in support of 49 projects in 2018. The projects provided direct services to residents, and supported organizational development and skill building activities for community agencies.

Allocations through the Community Investment Fund had a vital impact on York Region residents in 2018:

  • Approximately 46,000 breakfasts and snacks were distributed to York Region students through the Food for Learning program
  • More than 700 individuals experiencing homelessness found shelter at Inn from the Cold and Mosaic Interfaith Out of the Cold during the winter months
  • Over 4,000 residents received support to help with transportation needs through the Transit Ticket Program, which provides approximately $100,000 to non-profit community agencies to help buy transit fares for client use
  • Four community agencies received more than $100,000 to support activities that help to strengthen their performance and impact

York Regional Council established the Community Investment Fund in 2002 to support agencies in nine local cities and towns to deliver programs and services to address community needs and service gaps.
