Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan has helped to protect millions of jobs, provide emergency support to families and keep businesses afloat as they deal with the impact of COVID-19. A central part of this is the Regional Relief and Recovery Fund (RRRF), which helps support those who may not be eligible for other programs.
CFDCs across Southern Ontario are providing vital RRRF support through FedDev Ontario to local small businesses impacted by COVID-19. Community Futures Huron has been able to help 82 businesses and helped maintain 256 jobs in Huron County through the RRRF.

In this time, Community Futures Huron has provided $1.6 M in liquidity support to help almost 82 businesses impacted by the pandemic to cover costs and maintain 256 jobs.
