Todd Smith, MPP for Bay of Quinte, announced today that 12 local organizations will share $729,400 in funding to help offset the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The grants are provided through the Resilient Communities Fund, of the Ontario Trillium Foundation – an agency of the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture.

“Non-profit organizations are a crucial and valued part of any community,” said Smith, making the announcement at Heal with Horses, on Danforth Road. “Countless
people rely on their services every day, and even facing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, they still
deliver. This funding will help them offset those impacts and continue supporting those who need it most.”
