Other Comments:

Federal, state, foundation, and corporate funding will be distributed by LCBO on a matching basis to support local activities before and during the bicentennial. Many of these activities are not yet identified or are not large enough to merit separate project summaries, however resources must be set aside to fund them. Planning to date has focused on larger infrastructure projects; this effort will support more of the smaller and program-related projects.
