The Main Street Revitalization Initiative is coming to an end. All Main Street projects must have their eligible costs spent by March 31, 2020. Once you have completed spending, please complete your final report and consider communications activities to promote the project and the funding provided by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food & Rural Affairs.
