In 2022, TAF will begin to assess two extra elements as part of its grant application process. Look for new questions related to this in our 2022 application forms:
- POTENTIAL FOR SCALE-UP: TAF seeks to support initiatives with the potential to be scaled up across the GTHA for maximum impact. Although such change is often achieved beyond the timeframe of a funded project, we believe that the likelihood of scaling up a solution is higher when the initial project is designed with this goal in mind.
- DESIGNING FOR MULTIPLE BENEFITS: TAF recognizes that many urgent societal issues are interrelated, and that climate actions need to be designed to minimize community harms and maximize community benefits. Designing solutions with co-benefits in mind supports equity, enhances their relevance across multiple constituencies, and promotes their long-term durability.
