Apply now for Northern & Regional Economic Development Program

The provincial government launched its $2 million Northern and Regional Economic Development Program on December 19. The program will fund a broad range of economic development and diversification projects.

"As a leading advocate for our province’s towns and villages, Alberta Municipalities is pleased to see the provincial government focus on the unique needs of Alberta’s smaller and more remote communities," said ABmunis President Cathy Heron in a Government of Alberta news release. "We welcome efforts to grow and diversify our province’s economy, including renewed support for Regional Economic Development Alliances."

For municipalities, 50% of eligible program costs may be covered, up to a maximum of $200,000. The program guidelines outline eligibility requirements and funding parameters.

The deadline to apply is January 22, 2023 and funding decision notification will occur in March 2023.
