May 9, 2022 – The ETSI-BC team is pleased to share that in the Spring 2022 funding intake that closed on May 1, 2022, we received 24 applications, from organizations based in 8 of the 9 regional districts in our service area. A total of $375,000 was earmarked for the intake and the applications received totaled $526,425, to support projects worth over $1.14 million building economic development capacity, innovation and key sectors in the region.
The ETSI-BC Grant Team will review all the proposals and the two ETSI-BC Regional Advisory Committees will then be asked to provide their recommendations. “Thank you to all applicants for your hard work putting together these proposals,” noted Laurel Douglas, CEO of ETSI-BC. “We know it takes collaboration, thoughtful consideration, and a lot of effort to develop a proposal for consideration. We hope to share the news of the successful projects in late June.”
