New funding is available from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario that may be valuable to organizations in the mental health and addictions sector.
The AGCO has launched a call for applications for its Education, Training and Awareness (ETA) Fund. Through this fund, the AGCO backs projects designed to improve compliance with provincial laws and/or enhance awareness of issues of public interest within the sectors the AGCO regulates, which includes alcohol, gaming, horse racing and cannabis retail.
This year, the AGCO has $250,000 available through the ETA Fund, with a maximum of $100,000 for any one project or initiative. Industry associations, social responsibility groups and others who are similarly active and have capacity to deliver programming in the sectors the AGCO regulates are encouraged to apply.
To be eligible, applications must be submitted before 5 p.m. ET on June 28. For more information, visit the AGCO’s website.
