First Round of 2017 Elgincentives Grants Approved

Central Elgin, ON - Elgin County is pleased to announce that the first round of Elgincentives Community Improvement Plan (CIP) grants for 2017 have been approved.

In November 2016, the Ontario Professional Planners’ Institute honoured the program with an Excellence in Planning Award in the Municipal Statutory Planning category. Now in its third year of operation this award-winning program is having a visible impact on the County’s downtowns and tourism corridors. Since its inception in October 2015, the program has approved 58 applications for a total of $390,000 in grants for projects valuing $1.454 Million.

“This program has enabled Elgin County to help local businesses to make significant improvements and expansions to their properties ensuring that the community’s business infrastructure remains vibrant,” said Economic Development General Manager Alan Smith.

The Elgincentives CIP offers financial incentives to private businesses that cover up to 50% of eligible costs to a maximum of $15,000 per project. Businesses will qualify for Elgincentives provided that they meet certain criteria and are located in one of the following areas: downtowns; agricultural areas; and, ports and lakeshore areas.
