The Employment Modernization Fund is not related to the Strategic Program Investment fund currently offered by the Ministry of Community and Social Services. Click here for further information about the Strategic Program Investment fund.
The Employment and Modernization Fund is part of the Ontario government’s $810 million investment strategy for community and developmental services.
The fund offers financial support to projects that promote greater inclusion and independence for people with developmental disabilities.
There are two funding-application streams:
The ministry is now accepting applications for projects that start on or after April 1, 2017 and are completed by March 31, 2019.
Congratulations to these 38 communities/organizations who received grants from the 2014-2015 Ministry of Community and Social Services Employment Modernization fund.
Ministry-funded transfer payment agencies that serve adults with developmental disabilities must be the lead applicant. However, we strongly encourage regional and cross-sectoral partnerships.
Proposals for this fund must be submitted to regional offices by only those agencies funded by the Ministry of Community and Social Services.
All applications must be received by regional offices by December 19, 2016.
