Land Clearing and Tile Grants
Provided by the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation.
What is Eligible?
Land clearing and/or tile drainage contractor costs (materials and labour) and the project management/administration fees of the service provider are eligible for support. The land can be already in production or can be new acreage.
Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) will fund 50% of land clearing and/or tile drainage contractor costs to a maximum of $500 per acre and 100% of the project management/administration fees, which is calculated as 10 per cent of the contractor costs to a maximum of $50 per acre. Funding is in the form of a conditional contribution.
The individual producers must make cash contributions of at least 10% of the contractor costs (materials and labour) specific to their individual acreage. NOHFC will not fund the same parcel of land twice (e.g. land clearing in year one followed by tile drainage in the same or subsequent years). The maximum funding for a parcel of land will be $500 per acre.
