Provincial grants handed out

North Okanagan communities are accessing provincial funds.

Vernon, Lumby, Coldstream,  Armstrong, Enderby, Spallumcheen, the Regional District of North Okanagan and the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District will receive Strategic Community Investment Fund grants.

Funds come from the traffic fine revenue sharing program and small community and regional district grants.

“By re-investing money, funding from programs like SCIF and TFRS give communities the freedom to spend money on projects and priorities of their choosing,” said Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA.

Coldstream: $349,056

Lumby: $296,559

Vernon: $492,914

RDNO: $138,026

Armstrong: $305,828

Enderby: $350,547

Spallumcheen: $412,834

CSRD: $129,907

“The province is committed to creating safe neighborhoods. One of the best ways to do that is give communities the resources to spend on programs like crime preventions and associated policing,” said Shuswap MLA George Abbott.
