Yes, that's correct. We do not provide money in advance. We only reimburse costs incurred, so as the towns build their project, they submit claims to the department. We review the claims carefully to make sure all the costs are eligible according to the terms and conditions of the program as approved by Treasury Board prior to issuing payment. Then we have a number of requirements for closing out the projects before they receive their final payment.
