2018-19 Partnership Allocation Program Guidelines and Applications are now available!

Our 2018-19 program will be launching on April 1, 2018 but we want to give you plenty of time to review the requirements, think about partnership project ideas, and submit your applications.

The 2018-19 Partnership Allocation Program Guidelines document is available for download now. Please read this document prior to submitting applications or discussing your project ideas with Kawarthas Northumberland staff.

Applications are reviewed and approved on an ongoing basis, so it is recommended that you plan ahead and submit them as early as possible. Applications can be submitted immediately, but will not be reviewed until the program officially begins in April. General applications are due by November 16, 2018 or until funds have been depleted. Other opportunities, such as coaching with Tourism Cafe, and Edge of the Wedge have early deadlines.

The following changes have been made to the program:

  • Project-specific application forms for each initiative and special opportunity (see below to download)
  • New funding ratios for Experience Development / Enhancement ($2:$1) and Workforce Development ($3:$1) to increase our financial contribution toward these initiatives
  • Minimum of two partners that are committed to the project (with the exception of Wayfinding Signage which requires a minimum of 10)
  • Minimum total project value of at least $5000.00 (with the exception the Tourism Cafe Coaching Services and Edge of the Wedge)
  • Initialing each page of the contract to ensure your complete understanding of obligations
  • Removal of External Marketing and Memberships as  eligible project initiatives
