The Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure announced today that it would begin accepting Expressions of Interest from eligible municipal governments for the 2015 Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF). OCIF Expressions of Interest are due by September 11, 2015.

OCIF provides $100 million annually to support small, rural and northern communities. $50 million of OCIF funding is formula-based and has been allocated previously for this year. The remaining $50 million is for application based projects. OCIF funding supports core road, bridge, water and wastewater infrastructure.
