The BCC is excited to announce the award of a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) in support of our application to the Resilient Communities Fund. We believe that OTF’s investment in the BCC will support our efforts to build resilience and capacity in our organization. These funds will help us generate revenue and stay connected to our community while we recover through COVID. Our grant of $149,000 will support the purchase of audio-visual equipment, a portable stage, chairs, a sound deadening room divider, a storage building, a road sign, and materials to complete a wall. We are excited to work with the Ontario Trillium Foundation on this revenue-generating project at the BCC.
The BCC was fortunate in 2021 to be awarded a second grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF). The $33,600 from the Community Building Fund grant provides the BCC with a few months of staffing and operating stability while we shift to building and promoting a new online presence and implementing strategic priorities from our Master Plan. This Plan includes a business model emphasizing potential for growth and development as a community hub.
