Congratulations to the 12 municipalities who received a microgrant for economic development in their area!
Through funding from the Government of Alberta’s Economic Development in Rural Alberta Plan (EDRAP)
the RMA has developed a rural economic development microgrant program. This program provides selected rural municipalities with $10,000 to support projects related to innovative economic development ideas or plans. These projects will be completed by March 2024. The recipients are:
- County of Newell
- County of Vermilion River
- Camrose County
- Vulcan County
- Special Areas Board
- Smoky Lake County
- Foothills County
- Lacombe County
- Municipal District of Willow Creek
- Flagstaff County
- Mountain View County
- Brazeau County
The RMA will be working with grant recipients to share lessons learned and how other municipalities could undertake similar projects. This information will be shared through a final report in spring 2024.
The RMA thanks all members that applied for a microgrant!
