Halton Region

Almost $1.4 million in funding has been awarded by Halton Region for community programs and projects to help enhance the health and well-being for all Halton residents. This funding, offered through the Halton Region Community Investment Fund in one, two or three year grants, will support 27 programs that address mental health, prevent homelessness, support older adults, children and youth, and address other social needs of Halton’s residents.

This year, the following programs will receive funding from the Halton Region Community Investment Fund:

In addition to this program funding, 10 organizations will receive their second installment of a multi-year grant that was awarded in 2015. Next month, Regional Council will award an additional $200,000 to organizations that address food insecurity.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
