The Rideau-Saunders-Prescott Community Improvement Plan (CIP) Grant Program was approved by Council in the 2017 budget and includes an expansion of the current CIP district and an increase in the budget for the program from $20,000 per year to $50,000 for 2017.
The Municipality is now accepting applications for the Rideau-Sanders-Prescott 2017 Community Improvement Plan (CIP) Façade, Landscape and Signage Improvement Grant Program. The deadline for applications to be submitted is May 12, 2017.
“The CIP grant program stimulates private sector investment and has had great success over the last three years”, stated Mayor David Gordon. Now going into the fourth year, the program has provided a total of $60,000 in financial support and has leveraged another $121,000 in private investment.
An open house is being held on Wednesday, April 5 at the North Grenville Public Library, 1 Water Street, Kemptville, from 5 to 7 pm to provide information about the program, answer questions, give feedback on project ideas and allow eligible property owners and businesses within the CIP district to pick up CIP packages.
Full program guidelines, details and applications can also be found on the Municipality’s economic development website at www.investnorthgrenville.ca. Just go to the Resources Tab from the home page to find the CIP program. Information packages can also be picked up at the Municipal Centre (2nd floor reception).
