Canada Community Revitalization Fund

The Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) is a two-year, $500 million national infrastructure program to revitalize communities across Canada. Not-for-profit organizations, municipalities and other public institutions, and Indigenous communities can apply for funding for projects that aim to:

  • revitalize downtown cores and main streets
  • reinvent outdoor spaces
  • create green infrastructure
  • increase the accessibility of community spaces

Examples of projects that could receive funding under this program include:

  • farmers markets
  • community and cultural centres
  • parks or community gardens
  • recreational trails and public outdoor sports facilities
  • multi-purpose centres

Projects funded under the CCRF could receive a maximum contribution of up to $750,000 or $1 million (depending on project location), with funding to cover up to 75% of the total project costs. Indigenous community projects may qualify for funding to cover 100% of total project costs. All contributions will be non-repayable.

Indigenous applicants to the Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) may request additional time to submit applications, taking into account that the CCRF is a time-limited initiative ending March 31, 2023. For more information, Indigenous applicants are asked to contact their respective Regional Development Agency as early as possible prior to July 23, 2021.
