How long will it take to find out whether my initiative will be funded?
We will continue to aim to provide a funding decision within four months from the time your complete application is received, including all required documents. Due to a high volume of GMF funding applications at this time, it may take slightly longer than four months to receive a funding decision. Please contact us for more information.
What is the difference between the new funding approval process effective December 1, 2011, and the previous one?
There is no difference in the funding approval process for plans, studies, tests and brownfields capital projects. Submitted applications are reviewed as they are received in a non-competitive process. They are not compared to other applications, but instead scored according to established criteria. The new competitive process only applies to capital projects in the energy, transportation, waste and water sectors.
