Regional Tile Drainage Program

The 2024 intake for tile drainage projects will open on March 18, 2024

This year's application form is now available. Please review the guidelines carefully to ensure you have all necessary documents before submitting your application. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

If your project is included in a consortium, the work must be completed before the project closes (typically within a year of NOHFC project approval). If you fail to complete your project, you jeopardize NOFIA’s ability to deliver this funding and NOFIA reserves the right to exclude you from any future consortium.


The consortium will be structured after the application deadline and you will be notified when your project has been submitted. All 2023 work will be undertaken at your own risk. Costs incurred before they are eligible (date provided once included in a consortium) will not be considered.


NOFIA reserves the right to limit individual acreages within each consortium. If applying for multiple locations, please prioritize locations in your application.

Upon opening of the intake, applications may be submitted via email to, faxed to the office at 705-647-4783, or dropped off in person at 51B Armstrong Street N, New Liskeard.

*2024 tender forms are available upon request

*If you are a corporation, you must apply using your legally registered business name and will be required to submit incorporation documents with your application.

General Guidelines:


  • Applicants must have a Farm Business Registration (or exemption) to apply

  • Individual producers must pay at least 10% of the cost of the project through a cash contribution (savings/operating loan)

  • A portion of the funds applied for will be held until all partners' projects in the consortium are finalized

  • A tendering process must be used for expenses larger than $25,000

  • Work must be completed by a contractor licensed for tile drainage

  • All eligible expenses must be invoiced to a third party
