Press Release

January 31, 2024

The Honourable John Haggie, Minister of Municipal and Provincial Affairs, today announced more than $500,000 for seven community collaboration projects that will help advance community sustainability and viability throughout the province.

Municipalities, Inuit Community Governments and Local Service Districts in Newfoundland and Labrador were eligible to apply for Community Collaboration Grants, which were first announced on July 17, 2023.

The grants provide funding at a 90/10 cost share, with at least three communities partnering on a project and the commitment of continued, long-term collaboration. All project applications were evaluated on sustainability, service sharing, community collaboration, replicability and scalability.

Each of the approved projects is specifically targeted to address service gaps, as well as to build capacity through collaboration and shared services. A list of approved projects can be found in the backgrounder below.

“As a government, we remain committed to building strong, sustainable communities throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. I am pleased to announce seven projects will receive Community Collaboration Grants to better meet the collective needs of communities and their residents.”
