Economic Development Readiness Program


The Economic Development Readiness Program, delivered by the Island Coastal Economic Trust (ICET), supports communities with funding to support economic development and investment readiness. Funding can be used to access expertise or resources which are not available within the organization and to fund activities which are incremental to the organization’s day-to-day business and activities. 

Up to $30,000 in grant funding is available for eligible projects.
