Amount: Total available funding for the pilot is $3M. MLTSD (Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development) expects that individual Projects will not require more than $300,000 total in funding for partnership development, program development, and administration. Reasonable upward adjustments may be negotiated where the application provides a strong, demonstrated rationale for additional funding based on the nature of the proposal. The funding will be allocated based on eligible costs and through a competitive process based on the evaluation of the proposals. MLTSD reserves the right to set limits on the amount of funding an Applicant will receive.
Amount: Selected projects will be eligible for a non-repayable performance-based contribution and require a minimum 50 percent cash contribution by the recipient on eligible expenses net of HST. The minimum project size for an Eastern Ontario Innovation Initiative regional stream project is $200,000 resulting in a minimum contribution of $100,000 by the recipient.
