Regional District seeks funding proposals

The program provides support for economic development initiatives

Staff at the Regional District of Nanaimo know there are some good business ideas out there and they are urging those business and community groups that have them 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 RDN 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. For consideration in fall 2013, submissions must be received by noon on Monday, Sept. 30.

 

For more information contact the RDN Energy and Sustainability Department at 250-390-6510 or 250-954-3798, or e-mail nced@rdn.bc.ca.
