CKL SENIORS AND VULNERABLE RESIDENTS - CHARITIES AND NON-PROFITS - NEW FEDERAL EMERGENCY FUNDING

Today more federal funding was announced, focusing on the vulnerable in the City of Kawartha Lakes, including our seniors. 

The government allocated $350 million to support vulnerable Canadians through charities and non-profit organizations that deliver essential services to those in need.

The newly-announced Emergency Community Support Fund will flow through national organizations that have the ability to get funds quickly to local organizations that serve vulnerable populations. It will support a variety of activities, such as:

  • Increasing volunteer-based home deliveries of groceries and medications
  • Providing transportation services, like accompanying or driving seniors or persons with disabilities to appointments
  • Scaling up help lines that provide information and support
  • Helping vulnerable Canadians access government benefits
  • Providing training, supplies, and other required supports to volunteers so they can continue to make their invaluable contributions to the COVID-19 response
  • Replacing in-person, one-on-one contact and social gatherings with virtual contact through phone calls, texts, teleconferences, or the Internet
