WINNIPEG — The Manitoba government is cutting back some of the red tape non-profit organizations face to receive funding.
The non-profit strategy — first launched by the province in 2011 –is being expanded to include additional organizations to apply for multi-year agreements. Organizations that receive funding from more than one provincial department, which have not already been included in the strategy, are also welcome to apply.
“Non-profit organizations perform valuable services for thousands of Manitobans in all walks of life,” said Family Services Minister Kerri Irvin-Ross.
“By making it easier for them to access stable, multi-year funding and cut through red tape, these organizations can focus on helping the groups and individuals who rely on their services.”
Organizations who wish to apply for funding must demonstrate strong governance, financial responsibility and community support. The deadline to apply is November 20.
