QUEEN’S PARK — On April 2, Norfolk County and 84 other eligible municipalities located outside of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) will be able to nominate their most critical public transit projects for consideration under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP). This stream will fund construction, expansion and improvement of public transit networks.
Municipalities can easily apply for all ICIP funding streams using the Grants Ontario website, a ‘one-window’ source that handles application intake, review, nomination, reporting and transfer payment management processes.
“Our government is listening and has heard the infrastructure needs of our municipalities,” said Monte McNaughton, Minister of Infrastructure. “We are committed to cutting red tape for local governments, while funding local infrastructure priorities in the province.”
The Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program is a $30 billion, 10-year infrastructure program cost-shared between federal, provincial and municipal governments. Ontario’s share per project will be up to 33.33 per cent, or $10.2 billion spread across four streams:
1. Rural and Northern
2. Public Transit
4. Community, Culture and Recreation.More information on future intakes will be available soon. Intakes for other streams will launch later this year.
