In April, UBCM will open the Program Information Management System (PIMS) in which local governments may submit their applications online.  All applications must be submitted by June 1, 2017 through PIMS.

Local Governments will be notified when PIMS will be accepting online applications.   A sample of the application form is attached to the program guide for reference.

The Strategic Priorities Fund is an application based program available to local governments and other recipients outside of the Greater Vancouver Regional District to support infrastructure and capacity building projects that are either large in scale, regional in impact or innovative, and align with the program objectives of productivity and economic growth, a clean environment and strong cities and communities.

The SPF provides up to 100% funding for eligible capital and capacity building projects to a maximum SPF contribution $6 million per project.  Project applications over $6 million remain eligible provided that additional costs are confirmed through other funding sources.

Each eligible applicant may submit up to two capital applications and one capacity building application.
