Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP)
What is the Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP)?
The Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP) advances economic development in rural eastern Ontario. Through EODP, the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario) is collaborating with Community Futures Development Corporations (CFDCs) in eastern Ontario and Community Futures Ontario East to promote the growth of new and existing businesses in rural communities.
Who can apply?
Through Community Futures Ontario East and the 15 individual CFDCs located in eastern Ontario, EODP funding supports recipients whose projects focus on business growth, community innovation and/or collaborative economic development. Eligible recipients may include not-for-profit organizations, commercial enterprises, Aboriginal organizations or post-secondary institutions.
How is EODP funded?
Budget 2013 provided funding for the five-year extension of EODP to be delivered by FedDev Ontario. The Agency was launched in 2009 to work with the region's communities, businesses and not-for-profit organizations to actively promote the region and build a strong foundation of partnerships and relationships to secure Canada's long-term prosperity. Today, FedDev Ontario continues to deliver programs aimed at strengthening the economy and positioning the region to compete globally by helping create and grow businesses, cultivating partnerships and building strong communities.
