Provincial funding announced for city and CRD

The City of Williams Lake and the Cariboo Regional District are receiving $473,580 from the Strategic Community Investment Fund (SCIF), Cariboo North MLA, Coralee Oakes, and Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA, Donna Barnett announced this week.

“The City of Williams Lake will have additional resources to invest and fund priority programs and projects with these SCIF grants,” Oakes said.

This funding is part of almost $74 million being invested in communities throughout B.C. this year in SCIF grants including Small Community Grants, Regional District Basic Grants and the Traffic Fine Revenue Sharing Program.

“This is another example of our government’s commitment to provide local communities like the City of Williams Lake and the CRD with the necessary resources to invest in community safety and improve the quality of life for residents,” Barnett said.

The City of Williams Lake was awarded $253,432 in Small Community Grants, and $127,497 in Traffic Fine Revenue grants, while the Cariboo Regional District was given a Regional District Grant of $92,651.
