Rural Economic Development Fund (RED)
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.
Rural Economic Development Program (RED)
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.
The program will offer two new project categories:
- Economic Diversification and Competitiveness (projects that remove barriers to job growth and attract investment); and
- Strategic Economic Infrastructure (projects that advance economic development and investment opportunities).
The first intake of the redesigned program will open July 29, 2019.
