Together CK: Core Grant Program

What is Together CK?

Together CK (originally called the Community Partnership Fund) was established by Council in 2000, as a grant program using matching funding to promote community events within Chatham-Kent. Since its inception, the grant program has leveraged millions in municipal investment into tens of millions worth of community development projects, events and programming, and has encouraged widespread civic engagement and community improvement.

Together CK Strategic Plan Grants are awarded every four years through a competitive process and are eligible for organizations working on a program that supports the actions and outcomes of the CK Plan 2035 community strategic plan and Council’s Term Priorities.
