From now until April 30, Saskatchewan hometowns can submit their infrastructure projects for initial consideration under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. The program is providing more than $896 million in federal funding for all types of Saskatchewan infrastructure projects over the next 10 years.
Who can apply?
- First Nations and Métis communities and organizations
- Public sector bodies, such as utility boards
- Not-for-profit organizations, such as recreation or community associations and boards
- For-profit organizations who are working with Indigenous entities and/or municipalities
Funding is available for community, culture, and recreation projects, public transit, green infrastructure, and rural and northern communities. See the Expression of Interest (EOI) Guide for a full list of eligible project types and to learn how to submit a project EOI.
Through the EOI process, the province will gather information about the current infrastructure demand in Saskatchewan and further develop program criteria. Municipalities are encouraged to submit an EOI for all projects that are considered a priority and that hometowns would be prepared to start in the next five years. There is no limit to the number of EOIs, but a separate EOI must be submitted for each project, and the EOIs should be prioritized. The EOI is not an application for funding, but based on the EOI information, some projects may be identified to complete a detailed application for immediate funding consideration.
A full, detailed application intake is expected to happen in late 2019. More details will be available later this year, including a full application guide with project rating criteria.
