Sustainable New Agri-Food Products & Productivity (SNAPP) Program – COVID 19 Response


The Sustainable New Agri-food Products and Productivity (SNAPP) funding program was created to respond to opportunities and mitigate challenges of expanding agri-food in northern Ontario. The COVID-19 crisis is impacting all sectors of the economy and has created new challenges as well as opportunities for the agri-food sector. The Sustainable New Agri-Food Products and Productivity (SNAPP) Program – COVID 19 Response Fund is for northern Ontario food producers, processors and agri-food businesses to provide funding for projects that address challenges or respond to opportunities created by COVID-19. 

With funding through FedNor, the Sustainable New Agri-Food Products and Productivity (SNAPP) Program is an initiative of the Rural Agri-Innovation Network (RAIN), a division of the Sault Ste Marie Innovation Centre in partnership with the Northern Ontario Farm Innovation Alliance and the Northwestern Ontario Innovation Centre.

The SNAPP COVID-19 Response Fund provides up to $10,000 at 50% cost-share for individual projects that address opportunities related to the COVID-19 crisis.
