Brockville -Area municipalities will receive more than $1.4 million for local infrastructure projects through Ontario’s new COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream, Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes MPP Steve Clark announced today.
“I’m proud that our government continues to deliver on the commitment we made to support our local municipal partners by providing them with the resources they need to build and repair roads, bridges and water and wastewater systems,” said Clark. “This critical infrastructure is not only necessary to ensure our communities remain great places to live, it helps us attract new investment and create jobs as our economy continues to recover from COVID-19.”
Investments across Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes are as follows:
|United Counties of Leeds and Grenville||$150,525|
|Leeds and the Thousand Islands||$100,000|
|Front of Yonge||$100,000|
The funding announced by MPP Clark today is a part of Ontario’s approximately $250 million commitment to municipalities through the COVID Stream to assist with local infrastructure projects.
“This investment provides the predictable and stable infrastructure funding municipalities have asked for in the wake of COVID-19,” said Laurie Scott, Minister of Infrastructure. “With this COVID Stream funding, we are working directly with our municipal partners to deliver community infrastructure.”
In accordance with Federal government guidelines, all applications by municipalities for projects to be funded through the stream must be submitted no later than March 31, 2021. Projects must be completed by December 31, 2021.
