North Okanagan communities get provincial cash

The money is coming from the Strategic Community Investment Fund

Local communities are receiving financial resources from the provincial government.

The money is coming from the Strategic Community Investment Fund which restructures the traffic fine revenue sharing program and small community and regional district grants.

“For small communities, these funds go a long way towards maintaining important day-to-day services for local residents,” said Greg Kyllo, Shuswap MLA.

“The money and decision-making power is in their hands to put towards priority projects that benefit their communities.”

Locally, the grants are going to:

Armstrong – $237,580

Enderby – $205,377

Columbia-Shuswap Regional District – $75,719

Regional District of North Okanagan – $80,452

Coldstream – $202,507

Lumby – $174,377

Vernon – $290,186

“These communities can put these funds towards day-to-day operations, local projects, or public safety initiatives,” said Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA.

“These grants go a long way in helping municipalities continue to provide important services to local residents.”
