Community Partnerships

Recovery from disasters takes time and each community follows its own path in recovery. Community organizations play a critical role in recovery from disasters by helping to identify needs and gaps in services, leading coordination of recovery initiatives, providing services for the most vulnerable, and building community resilience to future emergencies.

Throughout the recovery process, the Canadian Red Cross works in partnership with community organizations towards the relief, recovery and resilience building of communities affected by disasters.

Community Partnerships Program

The Community Partnerships Program is a project-based grants program that funds community organizations to respond to community recovery needs and resilience-building priorities.

Funding opportunities are specific to each emergency event.  Be sure to consider the unique Guidelines and program information for each program, including the types of projects that can be funded, eligibility criteria, assessment process and timeframes.
