County FM to explore homelessness with funding to support local stories

99.3 County FM radio will explore homelessness in rural communities using funding from the 12th round of The Community Radio Fund of Canada’s (CRFC) Radiometres program.

The 42 projects for the community and campus radio stations chosen from across Canada are expected to build community in their local areas, drive the production of Canadian content and bring local voices to air.

Projects range from exploring queer histories to educating listeners on Indigenous truths across Canada.

County FM (CJPE) plans to create an eight-part documentary exploring homelessness in rural communities. The project will interview those experiencing homelessness as well as community organizations and leaders.

“Homelessness is often perceived as an urban dilemma, as the homeless are more visible and more numerous. While the situation may seem similar in rural areas to that in big cities, the rural homeless face some unique challenges,” said Craig Mills, 99.3 general manager. “With CRFC funding, our Voices from the Shadows: Homeless in a Rural Community project will shine the spotlight on what it means to be homeless in Prince Edward County (PEC) and Hastings County.”

Radiometres has supported community projects for more than 10 years and is guided by three pillars: content creation, skills development and digital initiatives.
