FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                              

OTTAWA: Gerald Soroka, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, would like to inform constituents that the Regional Relief and Recovery Fund is now open for applications.

Nearly $1 Billion will be made available through this fund to support businesses and communities. The fund is meant to help mitigate the financial pressure experienced by businesses and organizations to allow them to continue their operations, including paying their employees.

This initiative is implemented by the six regional development agencies, which have also adjusted certain criteria for their regular programs in response to the exceptional circumstances that businesses are facing.
