OSCIA supports Tier One Grants and stipulates the purpose of the funding is to evaluate, demonstrate, and communicate new crop production technology to Ontario stakeholders. This is to be achieved from the perspectives of production, innovation, economic and environment, with the overall objective to improve the sustainability of crop production in Ontario and to extend the information and experiences to Ontario stakeholders.
It is essential that the intended purpose closely aligns with the Grant Guidelines for those projects that rely on Tier One funding. The funding may also be used to increase membership engagement in local associations.
Up to $2,500 for each county/district or region will be available annually for activities between April 1, 2021 – February 1, 2023 to support eligible activities across the Province.
