Local Food Fund Re-Launch
Following a successful launch and high interest in the Local Food Fund, the program was temporarily paused on July 1, 2014, while the Ministry of Agriculture Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) undertook a review of the fund’s design. The review provided an opportunity to look at ways to improve the fund’s objectives and make any necessary adjustments needed to best target and support Ontario’s local food initiatives.
The program review is now complete and the ministry will begin accepting new applications on November 24, 2014 with a deadline of January 16, 2015. Projects must be completed by December 31, 2015.

The program application and guidebook will be available on the Local Food Fund website on November 24, 2014 in Word and PDF formats (www.ontario.ca/localfood).
