CFEP funding provides financial assistance to acquire, build, purchase, repair, renovate, upgrade or expand sports, recreational, cultural or other related public-use community facilities.

An organization can only submit one application for a capital project per year through either CFEP or for a capital equipment project Community Initiatives Program (CIP) Project-Based.
A facility can receive funding for one capital project per fiscal year (for example, roof replacement).
However, if an organization shares a facility with other organizations, each organization can submit a grant request for a project that relates to their own leased space.
Projects can include:
- building a new facility
- acquiring or purchasing a facility
- repairs, renovations, updates and expansion
Community facilities include sports, recreational, cultural or other public-use facilities.
Depending on the size and scope of a construction project, organizations may submit applications for stand-alone aspects for the same facility. For example, this could include phases such as a feasibility study, design and blueprint stage, initial construction to lock up stage and completion phase.
