The Regional District of Nanaimo is inviting business and community groups in District 69 to submit proposals for funding under the Northern Community Economic Development program.
The program provides support for economic development initiatives in the City of Parksville, the Town of Qualicum Beach and Electoral Areas E, F, G and H.
“The Northern Community Economic Development Program allows the RDN Board of Directors to contribute to eligible projects that advance the Board’s vision for a resilient, thriving and creative local economy,” said Regional District of Nanaimo Chairperson Joe Stanhope, who also chairs the Northern Community Economic Development Select Committee.
Project proposals can be submitted at any time, and will be considered by the Committee twice annually. To be considered in the next round, submissions must be received by 4:30 pm on Monday, October 12. This is the second and final opportunity to access funding for 2012.
Background information including program principles, priority areas, and eligibility requirements is included in the NCED Program Guide available online at rdn.bc.ca or at the RDN Administration Office at 6300 Hammond Bay Road in Nanaimo.
