EODP Grants

Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP)


For more than 10 years, the Peterborough Community Futures Development Corporation (CFDC) has supported local companies and organizations expand their operations through the Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP).

The EODP is managed by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario and is being delivered in partnership with the 15 Community Futures Development Corporations in eastern Ontario, as well as the Eastern Ontario Community Futures Development Corporation Network Inc. The program supports rural eastern Ontario communities to pursue the creation of a competitive and diversified regional economy through investment in economic development, small business growth, job creation and community innovation.

To date, more than $80 million has been invested through the EODP on more than 7,600 business and community development projects. Over the next five years, $48-million is available through the EODP.
