On June 30, 2022, the Rural Capacity Investment Fund (RCIF) Committee had its first meeting. The committee plans to meet every two weeks.
The RCIF Committee members are enthusiastic to support this work and committed to getting the work done to help build capacity and improve retention and recruitment in rural Alberta.
The RCIF committee has agreed that the focus of the fund will be on retention and recruitment.
The RCIF Committee agreed to a Term of Reference and will be using a consensus model in making decisions.
Work is underway to develop the criteria and processes for submissions, as well as identifying eligible units, sites and programs. The committee will provide oversight and approval in response to initiatives/funding requests.
RCIF encourages individuals to use the Letter of Understanding #7 as the mechanism to provide ideas and information for retention and recruitment initiatives at the local level.
The RCIF looks forward to our continued collaboration in the coming months to support retention and recruitment initiatives in rural communities.
