Accessing the Application

If you are redirected back to United Way Hastings & Prince Edward’s website page, you are applying for Program and Services Innovation and Redesign: focus on adapting or creating new programs using information gained during the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizations may submit one application for funding. If an organization applies on behalf of a collaborative, that counts as one application.

Here are some examples of projects you may want to undertake (not an exhaustive list):

  • Exploring the adaptation of a program, service, or service delivery system using information gained during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Testing or piloting a program, service, or service delivery system that was redesigned or adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Purchasing equipment or other program materials to facilitate the adaptation of a program and/or service using information gained during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Evaluating or analyzing the adaptation or redesign of a program, service, or service delivery system that was implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Other activities to help your organization modernize or adapt its program and services.

Non-Qualified Donees Organizations that are Non-Qualified Donees (e.g., Incorporated Non-profits) must apply in partnership with a Qualified Donee (e.g., Registered Charity) who will act as the fiduciary agent for the project, meaning they will sign the funding agreement and manage the funding on behalf
of the Non-Qualified Donee. The application must be filled out naming the Qualified Donee as the Lead Applicant with the name of Non-Qualified Donee and a note indicating the trustee relationship entered in Question 6 (Collaboration). In this case, the Qualified Donee can submit an additional CSRF application for their own organization if desired.
