Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC calls for projects

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

The Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC is proud to an­nounce the first call for projects un­der its Poli­tique de sou­tien aux pro­jets struc­turants pour améliorer les mi­lieux de vie, made pos­si­ble through the Fonds de développe­ment des ter­ri­toires, the suc­ces­sor to the Poli­tique na­tionale de la ru­ral­ité and its Pacte ru­ral.

The Poli­tique de sou­tien aux pro­jets struc­turants pour améliorer les mi­lieux de vie has $335,000 avail­able for th­ese projects, des­tined as much for mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties as for non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions and co­op­er­a­tives, with the ex­cep­tion of fi­nan­cial co­op­er­a­tives. Those in­ter­ested have un­til Jan­uary 15th, 2016, to sub­mit a project.

The aim of the projects should be to im­prove the qual­ity of life of cit­i­zens through projects that favour en­vi­ron­men­tal, eco­nomic and so­cial de­vel­op­ment in the re­gion.

“With the Poli­tique de sou­tien aux pro­jets struc­turants pour améliorer les mi­lieux de vie, the MRC hopes to as­sure a con­ti­nu­ity and reaf­firm its will­ing­ness to sup­port mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties in their de­vel­op­ment,” com­mented Jac­ques De­mers, pre­fect of the MRC Mem­phré­m­a­gog and mayor of Sainte-Cather­inede-Hat­ley. “Th­ese funds will al­low us to con­tinue the work started with the Pacte Ru­ral. We want to sup­port struc­tured and sus­tain­able projects.”

Se­lec­tion cri­te­ria and pro­gram ori­en­ta­tions can be found in the doc­u­ment Fonds de développe­ment des ter­ri­toires 2015-2016 : Poli­tique de sou­tien aux pro­jets struc­turants pour améliorer les mi­lieux de vie avail­able on the MRC’s web­site. The reg­is­tra­tion form can be found in the sec­tion Pro­grammes et ser­vices/ Fonds de développe­ment des ter­ri­toires.
