Only provincial and territorial governments are eligible to apply to the federal government under the NDMP, but provinces and territories can partner with other organizations.
New Brunswick welcomes project proposals from municipalities, regional service commissions, and other eligible organizations.
- Municipalities, regional service commissions, and other public sector bodies,
- private sector bodies,
- band councils,
- international non-government organizations, or
- any combination of these entities.
New Brunswick will assess all project proposals received and submit selected proposals to the federal government. If a project is approved by the federal government, New Brunswick will flow through the federal funds to the partner organization.
New Brunswick encourages project proposals that include participation by multiple partners. For example, a Regional Service Commission could submit a proposal that includes membership from municipalities, local service districts and First Nations and have a representative on a project steering committee.
