The Strategic Transportation Infrastructure Program (STIP) provides financial assistance to rural and smaller urban municipalities for developing and maintaining key transportation infrastructure. STIP supports municipalities as they complete projects that improve accessibility and the movement of goods to market, increase opportunities for economic growth and enhance safety and efficiency while extending the life of key transportation infrastructure.
There are four components within STIP:
1) Local Road Bridge Program
2) Resource Road Program
3) Community Airport Program
4) Local Municipal Initiative
Applications are due February 3rd, 2017 for funding in the 2017-2018 fiscal year.
