The Trust released two Expressions of Interest (EOI) today seeking community projects to address social isolation and increase food recovery. There is $300,000 available for each EOI. Successful proponents will develop, implement and evaluate proposed projects and share learnings with key Basin stakeholders. An information session about each opportunity will be held next week.
The Social Connections Initiative EOI is seeking projects that will connect residents across all ages and stages of life who are experiencing social isolation with their neighbours and community. Full details about the opportunity and the December 19 and January 15 information sessions can be found here.
The Basin Food Recovery EOI is seeking projects that will help reduce food waste by redirecting healthy food to Basin residents facing significant barriers to accessing nutrition, especially children and youth. Full details about the opportunity and the December 20 and January 16 information sessions can be found here.
The EOIs will support community projects across the Columbia Basin. Eligible proponents include registered non-profits, public organizations, municipalities, regional districts and Indigenous organizations delivering services in the Trust region.
The deadline to submit is January 31, 2019.
