A charitable organization or foundation registered as a charity by the Canada Revenue Agency is eligible to apply
It provides an online granting system that delivers a wide range of administrative benefits and dramatically reduces the use of paper and paper-based processes. Overall the process is a two-step exercise based on an organization creating and maintaining their profile and then applying for a grant – both steps online.
The following organizations may apply for either the Community Program or the Province-Wide Program, as long as they are in compliance with the Ontario Human Rights Code :
** An organization incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation without share capital in a Canadian jurisdiction
** An unincorporated branch or chapter of a registered charity or incorporated not-for-profit organization. The incorporated organization or registered charity must authorize the application and accept responsibility for any approved grant
** A First Nation
** A Métis or other Aboriginal community
** A collaborative of two or more organizations that are working together to achieve a common goal. The collaborative must include at least one eligible member. The eligible member normally acts as the lead applicant and accepts responsibility for any approved grant The following organizations may apply for Community Program grants only :
** Small municipalities (with populations of 20,000 or less based on the most recent census) and local Services Boards for grants in the arts and culture and sports and recreation sectors only
** Small municipalities (with populations of 20,000 or less), local Services Boards, First Nations and County library boards (serving small municipalities with populations of 20,000 or less) for grants to support specific library services

** For-profit organizations
** Municipalities with populations over 20,000, universities/colleges, schools, hospitals and their agencies*
** Agencies of provincial or federal governments*

Types of Grants Available
** Operating grants are for an organization’s ongoing program costs. Operating grants may be for a single year or multi-year but may not exceed a maximum of five years
** Project grants are for one-time activities or activities with a defined time frame. Project grants may be for a single year or multi-year but may not exceed a maximum of five years
** Capital grants are for renovations and equipment purchases. OTF encourages applications that promote multi-use community spaces or shared spaces and equipment, or improve accessibility or increase energy efficiency.
For additional information about small capital investments of $15,000 and less see below*. Applicants are eligible to apply for a combination of grant types. For example, an applicant may request funding to deliver a program that includes an operating component for costs such as staff salaries and a capital component for renovations and equipment.
For applications that combine request types, the capital component cannot exceed $150,000 per project. A single organization may ordinarily have one active OTF grant at a time. A new application will ordinarily be accepted only after the active grant has been completed and all reporting requirements have been met.
However, an organization may have a grant and also participate in a collaborative grant at the same time provided the grants are for different activities.
To ensure equitable access for communities throughout the province, under certain circumstances, OTF does allow organizations to hold more than one grant at a time, subject to the approval of the local Grant Review Team.
These include First Nations, local Service Boards, Small municipalities, and eligible organizations serving rural and/or Northern areas. Please contact your local Program Manager for more information.

** Duplication of funding received from another funder
** Budget deficits
** Religious activities, including renovations to a place of worship unless it is also used for community activities or is a significant, designated heritage site used for the general benefit of the community
