The Community Improvement Plan (CIP) provides financial incentives for eligible projects that target key planning and growth management objectives for development within Barrie.
Eligible projects include affordable housing projects, brownfield site redevelopment, and mixed use developments within the Urban Growth Centre, key intensification areas, and the preservation of built heritage.
Applications for financial incentives can be submitted online via APLI, the City’s
online application tool (Planning tab). Account creation and/or login is required. The first CIP application intake period for 2021: February 15 – May 15, 2021.

There are three incentive programs offered through the CIP:
Proposed developments have to satisfy general eligibility requirements and then specific eligibility requirements under each program.
The incentive programs include things such as a rebate on certain fees and permits (such as planning application fees and building permit fees), affordable residential units per door incentive, a tax increment based grant on eligible brownfield redevelopments and a grant for renovation and restoration work on buildings on the Municipal Heritage Register.
The timing of making an application and any grant payouts are described within the CIP text. All grant applications will be considered based on available funding. Council approves an annual budget for these incentive programs. Approval of grants is delegated to a City staff committee, the Grants Review Group. City Planning staff make recommendations to the Grants Review Group. Construction of an approved project must commence within eighteen (18) months of the grant approval, with the issuance of a building permit, to be specified within the grant agreement between the property owner and the City.
