Fee for Services

PREDA has established a fee for services program that allows members to access value-added services.

Municipal Project Fund

The Municipal Project Fund (MPF) was created in 2012 by municipal members for municipal members.

PREDA has established the MPF to create opportunities for our municipal members to access funds to support economic development projects within the PREDA region. Recognizing the challenges communities have in initiating projects due to financial constraints, and further noting that numerous government grants are based on regional concepts and partnerships and collaborations, this fund is intended to assist projects that do not necessarily fall into these categories. The selection of grant recipients is conducted through a peer review process as delineated in the Terms of Reference for the MPF Selection Committee.
