Participatory Grant Making 

 

 

Participatory Grantmaking 

The Tamarack Institute and the World Education Services - Mariam Assefa Fund have partnered to launch a Participatory Grantmaking Pilot (PGP) in one Ontario community in 2021. The Participatory Grantmaking Pilot will focus on the needs of immigrants and refugees in one community and fund community-selected projects/organizations that help to remove economic barriers and build equitable economies for immigrants and refugees.

We are excited to announce that the Region of Peel has been selected for the Participatory Grantmaking Pilot in partnership with the Tamarack Institute and the WES Mariam Assefa Fund. This initiative aims to remove economic barriers for immigrants and refugees and to build more equitable economies.
