Tools & Funding Programs

This document provides a list of government resources that rural communities might consider when developing projects to support their communities. 

Inventory of Community Economic Development Tools for Rural B.C. Communities

The Program encourages potential applicants to review other sources of infrastructure funding prior to applying to the Rural Dividend. These sources of funding may be more suitable for infrastructure based projects.

Economic Development Grant Databases

Currently, both the Government of British Columbia and Civic Info BC provide online databases of sources for funding and grants. These databases can assist applicants in identifying additional sources of funding to support their project.
