Intake Two of the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program (CIP) has been launched.
This program, created by our Conservative Government in 2015, seeks to renovate existing Community and cultural Infrastructure for the 150th Anniversary of Confederation in 2017.
To be eligible for funding, at least half of the total renovation funding must come from a source other than the Canada 150 CIP.
Eligible projects include:
• cultural centres and museums;
• community centres (including Legion Halls);
• parks, recreational trails, including fitness trails, bike paths and other types of trails;
• recreational facilities including local arenas, gymnasia, swimming pools, sports fields, tennis, basketball, volleyball or other sport-specific courts, golf courses, ski hills or other types of recreational facilities;
• tourism facilities;
• cenotaphs; and
• other existing community infrastructure assets for public benefit that have a local community impact, such as but not limited to, local roads, connectivity and broadband, drinking water treatment and distribution systems, local airports, solid waste management and wastewater infrastructure.
Applications must be submitted as soon as possible, as funding is limited to one per applicant.
