PROVINCE ANNOUNCES MORE FUNDING FOR MUNICIPALITIES


Friday, July 15, 2022 - The Manitoba government has launched the second intake of the Municipal Service Delivery Improvement Program, which provides funding for municipalities and planning districts to find ways to improve services and find efficiencies.


Municipalities and planning districts can apply for provincial funding through the program to conduct service delivery reviews to identify opportunities for savings. Service delivery programs in the areas of transportation, protection, water and sewer, recreation and culture, waste management, planning and general government administration, and other core services can be reviewed.


Potential savings from these initiatives will stay with municipalities and can be reallocated to other priorities in the community, the minister noted.


In March 2021, the Manitoba government committed up to $5 million over four years to support this program. Last year, the first intake resulted in 11 successful projects receiving more than $1.1 million.


The deadline to apply for the second intake is Sept. 5. For more information about the Municipal Service Delivery Improvement Program and how to apply, visit www.gov.mb.ca/mr/mfas/msdip.html.
