The Feasibility Studies program provides up to $20,000 in grant funding for municipalities, regional districts, First Nations bands, and registered non-profit organizations via Northern Development’s six principal Trust Accounts: the regional development accounts (Cariboo-Chilcotin/Lillooet, Northeast, Northwest, and Prince George), the Cross Regional account, and the Pine Beetle Recovery account to undertake feasibility study projects. Projects must be focused on feasibility studies that demonstrate a strong business case for an major infrastructure project that is generally aligned with Northern Development’s Economic Diversification Infrastructure funding program.
