The Manitoba government is distributing $10 million to rural municipalities to target infrastructure needs in their communities.
The funding is being allocated based on population thresholds, with all local governments receiving an equitable share.
“The AMM appreciates the Province of Manitoba listening to the concerns raised by our members about the importance of investing in municipal roads and bridges,” said Ralph Groening, president, the Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM).
“This funding is totally unconditional which provides greater flexibility and more ‘fair say’ for Manitoba municipalities.”
The provincial funding is unconditional and complementary to federal funding, meaning it can be stacked in conjunction with other funding programs and allocated based on an individual community’s needs.
