Campbell’s Bay, October 22, 2019— The MRC Pontiac has made more than $200,000 available to local organisations for the implementation of sustainable projects aimed at improving the quality of life of citizens.
The MRC Pontiac has pushed back the deadline for applying to the Territorial Development Fund (TDF) Growth Generating Projects program by three weeks to allow more organizations to apply for funding. This fund is intended for non-profit organisations, cooperatives, band councils of aboriginal communities and municipalities that have a growth-generating project.
The funds for this program, which arise from an agreement between the MRC Pontiac and the Ministère des Affaires Municipales et de l’Habitation (MAMH), are intended to support development projects that advance the MRC’s targeted priorities for local and regional development in various sectors. Targeted sectors include:
Commerce et services;
Social and community;
Culture and heritage.
The organisations interested in applying to this program are invited to contact the MRC Pontiac’s economic development department to schedule an appointment:
- By phone at (819) 648-5689 Ext.122
- By e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
The new deadline for applications is November 21, 2019 at 4:00 p.m.
For more information regarding this fund, please visit the MRC Pontiac’s website at http://www.mrcpontiac.qc.ca/en/programs/territory-development-fund-fdt/growth-generating-projects/.
“The TDF Growth Generating Projects program is an opportunity for our local organizations to advance projects that contribute not only to the economic growth of the Pontiac, but also to the revitalization of our communities.”
