Origin

(May 6, 2015) Report from the Acting Executive Director, Social Development, Finance and Administration

Summary

This report recommends funding to organizations requesting support under Community Service Partnership (CSP) and the Service Development Investment (SDIP) programs. It also recommends extending the term of the City’s service agreement with Findhelp Information Services (Findhelp).

 

CSP provides ongoing and stable support to Toronto's not-for-profit organizations to enable them to offer high quality and relevant services that strengthen the city's well-being.

 

Funding is recommended for 199 organizations for $14,845,390 to support 486 programs that improve social outcomes for vulnerable, marginalized and high-risk residents and communities.  Included in this recommendation is a 2.1 percent cost of living increase approved by Toronto City Council in the 2015 budget process. In addition, it is recommended that $15,000 be held to administer the senior's snow-shovelling program.

 

SDIP provides multi-year project funding to coalitions and organizations that develop community capacity and build effective partnerships within Neighbourhood Improvement Areas (NIAs) and across the city. Funding is recommended for 16 initiatives for $570,000.

 

Findhelp receives funding administered by Social Development, Finance and Administration Division (SDFA) under the Council approved terms and conditions for line item grants. Established in 1971, Findhelp is a charitable nonprofit organization that works to ensure that all people, especially those who face barriers to service, have easy access to accurate and appropriate human services information.
