May 10, 2019 News Release
The Ontario government is working for the people to better help rural and Indigenous communities attract investment, create jobs and boost economic development through a revitalized Rural Economic Development (RED) program. The first intake of the redesigned program will open July 29, 2019.
The updated program will continue to support projects that diversify and grow local economies and will now target more impactful projects with tangible community benefits. It will also reduce the burden for applicants, create efficiencies in program delivery, and better align with the government's priorities of creating jobs and removing barriers to investment and growth in Ontario's rural communities.
