The MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent is launching a call for projects as part of a revitalisation agreement with the Québec government.
The call for projects is intended for municipal organizations, private and social economy enterprises, cooperatives (excluding private businesses and cooperatives in the financial sector), non-profit organizations, and organizations within the education sector, as well as legal entities wishing to start a business. The projects or initiatives must support the revitalisation of services or equipment with the objective of contributing favourably to the development of the region.
The projects must relate directly to specific priority sectors including community development, tourism development, and workforce development. Projects should be short-term, with non-recurring funding requirements. In addition, the anticipated benefits of the proposed projects must involve one or more of the following municipalities: Dundee, Havelock, Hinchinbrooke, Huntingdon, and Saint-Anicet.
Organizations may submit proposals for projects eligible for up to a maximum of $100,000 in financial assistance. Applications must be received by February 15, at 4 p.m. Proposed projects must meet certain criteria related to their development potential within the region, while touching on at least one of the three priority sectors mentioned above.
Organizations interested in submitting a project are invited to contact Julie Dionne, the MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent’s community development officer, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 450-264-5411, ext. 252. (SR)
