SEPTEMBER 2017

Through its new Collective Impact Project, the Valley Regional Enterprise Network is funding short-term community projects and events that advance the “We Choose Now” Action Points.

Eligible community organizations can receive up to $1000 for a single event or project. Organizations must be located in one of the municipal or First Nation communities served by the Valley REN. These are: Glooscap First Nation, the County of Kings, the District of West Hants, and the Towns of Berwick, Kentville, Middleton, Windsor and Wolfville.

“The Collective Impact Project will support community organizations that are following the ONE Nova Scotia Coalition Collaborative Action Plan,”  said W. Coby Milne, interim CEO of the Valley REN.

“Our role at the Valley REN is to give businesses and communities the support and tools they need to accelerate their own success,” said Milne. “Through this project, we aim to encourage collaboration between community organizations and support initiatives that can make a positive impact in the regional economy.”
