1.  Requested the Executive Director, Social Development, Finance and Administration to report to the Community Development and Recreation Committee in the first quarter 2018 on a strategy for collecting disaggregated employment data on positions funded through the Community Partnership and Investment Program (CPIP).

Origin

(August 25, 2017) Report from the Executive Director, Social Development, Finance and Administration

Summary

This report highlights the impact of the Community Partnership and Investment Program (CPIP) grants, comprised of six grant programs which represent $32,611,814 million in funding in 2016 for 1,432 projects and programs, serving a total of 1,248,436 residents including many designated groups. It notes the continuing pressures not-for-profits face to secure adequate, sustainable funding to respond to community needs and underscores the need for better systems to gather and report on grant impacts.

 

The report recommends a one-time funding allocation to build capacity for Black leadership in response to the Interim Anti-black Racism Action Plan. Additionally, three capacity building grants to support the development and implementation of a Social Development Plan as part of the Alexandra Park Re-vitalization, enhance resident leadership in the four Emerging Neighbourhoods as part of the Toronto Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy 2020 and expand access to services and events for Indigenous Peoples.
