The government is now accepting applications for a natural gas infrastructure program. The Natural Gas Grant Program, operated by Infrastructure Ontario, is providing grants to help fund the building of new natural gas infrastructure projects in municipalities, First Nations, and unincorporated territories. The program is accepting applications under two separate streams:
- The Expansion Stream is for projects that help convert primarily residential connections into natural gas.
- The Economic Development Stream is for projects that convert mostly business connection to natural gas, specifically those that help agri-businesses, rural Ontario, First Nations communities or unincorporated areas.
Find out more about this program here. Applications will be accepted until July 31st, 2017.
