As part of Budget 2022, the BSC fund more than doubles to $25 million from $10.3 million. Since being introduced in 2019, the BSC program provides municipalities and non-profit organizations access to all-encompassing community grants.
The BSC program has been highly successful since its inception, and this funding will allow for its operational success to continue. These grants are part of our government’s commitment to growing our way out of the pandemic and supporting local communities and their organizations. The intake for the BSC closed on January 17th and funding was announced on April 21st.
The full list of 427 approved projects will be posted at https://www.gov.mb.ca/mr/bldgcomm/index.html.
