Grants Program to National Voluntary Organizations

Public Safety Canada offers grants and contributions to national voluntary organizations (NVOs) that work in the area of criminal justice and whose objectives and activities support and promote the public safety mandate and priorities of the Department.

The Grants Program to National Voluntary Organizations (GP) provides funding to NVOs who are, for the most part, active in the area of corrections. The funding is meant to help these organizations maintain a national structure and cover core operating expenses, such as staff payroll and office equipment leases. The GP provides a total of nearly $1.8M annually in the form of grants to NVOs which meet program eligibility criteria.
