"A lot of people have spent a great deal of time and effort developing ideas about how to access better Internet service, and they deserve a chance to be successful," said Business Minister Mark Furey.
"These first projects may be small, but for those who receive connections they'll make a big difference and possibly lead to innovative solutions that can be applied in other regions."
A total of up to $500,000 is available, with a maximum contribution of $75,000 per project.
Applications will be accepted until Dec. 31, and proposals will be reviewed as they are received.
Government continues to review 11 service-provider proposals that would provide additional immediate improvements to Internet service. ■
