Regional Relief and Recovery Fund
Businesses in the County of Simcoe can now apply for funding under new initiative called the Regional Relief and Recovery Fund (RRRF). The RRRF will support small and medium sized businesses that do not qualify for or have not been able to receive funding from current Government of Canada COVID-19 relief measures.
In order to provide targeted assistance to the small towns and communities in the County of Simcoe, local CFDCs will administer the funding and focus on assisting “main street” businesses, such as retail shops, restaurants, corner stores, and businesses of strategic importance to our communities, with interest-free loans up to $40,000. Support is available to businesses operated by sole-proprietors, corporations and partnerships.
Staff at the local Community Futures offices are here to walk you through the application process. Please visit your local CFDC’s website for more information on eligibility and the application process.
