Rat Control Program (CAP-RCP)
In 2018-19, SARM will administer a new rat control program (CAP-RCP) to provide financial assistance to rural municipalities (RMs), First Nations Bands (FNBs) south of the Northern Administrative District. The cost-share rebate program is designed to achieve maximum results and accountability, while keeping administrative requirements for RMs and FNBs to a minimum. The new rat control program builds on the success of PREP that came to a completion with the end of GF2 funding. In its first year, the CAP-RCP will provide cost-share rebates in the amount of $900,000 (April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019).
The program will provide up to a 50:50 cost-share payment to RMs and FNBs that are active in their rat control efforts and who follow the minimum level of service determined by the 2018-19 CAP-RCP. The program is designed to assist RMs and FNBs by providing the following support:
- based on a pro-rate formula, rebates of up to 50% of approved expenses;
- contracted services of a PCO Provincial Coordinator and six (6) PCO Supervisors; one located in each of SARM’s six divisions, to advise and assist with technical support.
