Village Receives Growing Communities Fund Award

Posted on

The Province of BC will deliver over $2.7 million in new funding to the Village of Cumberland this spring through the Growing Communities Fund.

As announced on March 3, 2023, the Growing Communities Fund is the single-largest investment in communities in our province’s history, with a one-time total of $1 billion in grants to all 188 B.C. municipalities and regional districts to address the needs of their growing communities. Funding amounts for local governments were calculated using a formula that reflects population size and growth.

Mayor Vickey Brown said the funding is much appreciated and an acknowledgement of the rapid growth the Village has been experiencing over the last decade and the demand that growth has placed on aging Village infrastructure. “These funds could really help with a couple of large infrastructure projects in the works including our Wastewater Upgrades Project and the rebuild of the No. 2 dam. There is a long list of infrastructure work needed here in the Village and Council will be looking at how to allocate this funding over the next few weeks”.

Grants will be distributed to local governments by the end of March 2023.
