RAIN announces critical COVID-19 Recovery Fund

The Rural Agri-Innovation Network known as RAIN, a division of the Sault Ste. Marie Innovation Centre, is introducing the Sustainable New Agri-Food Products & Productivity Program COVID-19 Recovery Fund.
RAIN Manager David Thompson says the funding will assist agri-food businesses in the Algoma District with adaptation projects and value chain development.
He adds COVID-19 has significantly challenged the agri-food sector to adapt in the face of the market disruption, so the fund will help the industry in several ways, including automation of equipment, improving delivery and increasing the capacity of the regional supply chains.
He adds the fund is available immediately for investment into eligible projects.
