Local Food Infrastructure Fund: Step 4. After you apply
Step 4. After you apply
Due to the extraordinary circumstances caused by COVID-19, it is anticipated that the delivery of services will take longer than the published service standard.
Once your application has been submitted, an acknowledgement notice will be sent to you.
Note: Applicants should not consider an application as submitted to the program until an acknowledgement notice is received.
After your application has been received, AAFC verifies that all required forms and declarations have been completed and there is sufficient detail in the application for a full assessment. When the application has been deemed complete and ready for assessment, notice will be provided to you. Service standards for assessments begin only after the application is deemed to be complete.
Once you submit an application, AAFC's goal is to:
- respond to general inquiries made to the program's phone number or email address before the end of the next business day
- acknowledge receipt of applications within one business day
- assess applications and send approval or a rejection notification letter within 100 business days of receiving a complete application package
- send a payment within 30 business days of receipt of a duly completed and documented claim. This is applicable only if an agreement is signed
Please note that even if a project meets all eligibility criteria, the submission of an application creates no obligation on the part of the Minister or of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada officials to provide funding for the proposed project. The Minister retains discretion to determine, based on other public policy and public interest considerations, whether an application that meets the criteria identified in this guide will ultimately receive funding.
