Huron County Municipality To Receive Revitalization Funding

Huron County | by Peter Jackson  

Between $39-45 thousand will go to each municiaplity for downtown storefront improvements.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs is looking to help municipalities draw more visitors and kick-start economic growth.

The funding comes through OMAFRA's $26 million Main Street Revitalization program, and all Huron municipalities will receive similar amounts.

In making the announcement in Toronto this week, Minister Jeff Leal says municipalities can either use the money directly or reassign it to small businesses for storefront improvements.

In Huron, funding amounts range from a high of almost $46 thousand for the Municipality of South Huron to just over $39 thousand for the Township of North Huron.

The funding is based on population figures contained in the 2016 census.
