The Manitoba government is seeking grant applications for community development projects and initiatives. Laurence Gillespie of the Flin Flon Neighborhood Revitalization Corporation says 75 thousand dollars is available locally through the Neighborhoods Alive Neighborhood Renewal Fund. He explains it can to things such as projects that support women’s safety and reduce rates of violence against women, projects that enable economic development and align with regional development strategies, help sustain community assets and community initiatives that concentrate on heritage, community tourism, recreation facilities and projects and innovation that supports social enterprises and that can show clear measurable social outcomes as a result of the project.
Gillespie encourages people to apply as a lot of this money has been left unused in the past. To apply or for more information you can contact Laurence at 204-687-6972, visit the Manitoba government website or find the link attached to this story at www.flinflononline.com.
