Although Flin Flon is not on the list of 175 projects approved some communities in the area have received funding. The Community Places program provides funding and planning assistance to build, upgrade, expand or acquire community facilities. The Snow Lake Centre on Family Violence will receive just over 13 thousand dollars for re-siding their building and the Pas Families Building a Better Community Group 50 thousand for a Spray Park. Successful grant applicants must also contribute to project costs often through local fund raising, grants from other sources or donated labor and materials.
Under the new Community Support Small Grants Program the Snow Lake Centre on Family Violence will receive 15 thousand for emergency short term operating funds and under the Community Planning Assistance Program the Kelsey Planning District including the RM of Kelsey, The Pas, LUD of Cranberry Portage and Hamlet of Wanless will receive just over 70 thousand dollars for a development plan bylaw and four zoning bylaws.
