Calling non-profit organizations: apply for York Region’s Circular Economy Initiatives Fund

York Region’s Circular Economy Initiatives Fund (CEIF) returns this year! Non-profit organizations have the chance to receive between $5,000 to $25,000 in funding for their community-driven, innovative project that reduces residential waste and advances the circular economy within York Region. The circular economy extends the life of resources and items so they can be used and reused continuously – not just used once and discarded.

Organizations interested in applying can complete a preliminary application form online before midnight on Monday, July 4, 2022. York Region will contact applicants who meet the pre-qualifying criteria and invite them to submit a detailed application. Once the detailed applications are reviewed, successful applicants will be contacted in October 2022 and will receive between $5,000 and $25,000 in funding to start their circular economy projects in January 2023. For more information on the application process, who is eligible to apply, and important deadlines visit To receive news as it is released, subscribe to Vaughan News and follow the official corporate channels on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
