Rural Frontenac Community Caring Fund

Rural Frontenac Community Services will provide financial assistance of up to $300 to residents in North and Central Frontenac.

The Community Caring Fund will provide funds to families with children up to 18 years of age to assist parents or caregivers with a child related expense – request a copy of a birth certificate, purchase a snow suit or boots, camp fees, sports, arts or recreation fees.

The Community Caring Fund also offers loans to assist residents who find themselves in a financial emergency and need assistance. For example; heating oil, gas or wood, hydro, unexpected medical needs, transportation or gas money, one-time expenses due to illness or other circumstances, household repairs or maintenance, car repairs. These funds are considered an interest-free loan and are expected to be paid back.
