Seniors housing in three communities have received a much needed funding boost thanks to a recent funding announcement.
Provencher MP Vic Toews recently announced that $4,561,500 in federal funding from the Economic Action Plan is being funneled into seniors housing projects in Ste. Anne, St. Malo and Grunthal.
The Menno Home in Grunthal will receive $4.45 million in funding towards the construction of a new forty-two bed low income seniors housing .
The Villa Youville in Ste. Anne is getting $99,000 to renovate eleven units and St. Malo’s Chalet Malouin will receive $12,500 for sixteen units.
Repairs that are eligible for funding include general improvements, energy-efficiency upgrades or conversions, and modifications to support people with disabilities.
The federal funding was made available through Canada’s Economic Action Plan, the federal government’s plan to stimulate the economy and create jobs during the global recession.
