Nearly 50 local organizations received funding from the City today. A total of 16 Community Enhancement Funds were handed out to organizations Multicultural Heritage Society. The total of that amount was $8,000. The remaining $354,120 was shared amongst 31 local non-profit organizations, like the Community Arts Council and Big Brothers, Big Sisters. That money came for the my-PG Community Grants fund.
Mayor Lyn Hall says these organizations are what makes this community healthy.
“Today is an opportunity for us to say thank you to those organizations and also to provide funding to those organizations,” he says. “The grant funding will provide them with the opportunity to leverage more funds and, in many instances, it’s the funding they need to just put them over the top on specific projects.”
