Norquay C.C. receives funding boost for renos

  • Print

The Norquay Community Centre is going through some upgrades.

On June 6, the City of Winnipeg announced a $37,600 grant to the Point Douglas club, located at 65 Granville St., to help pay for lighting and security upgrades to the building. The money will also pay for new drinking fountains.

The grant was only a slice of the $392,000 in funding announced by Mayor Sam Katz from the city’s community centre renovation grant program. Three rounds of grants have been awarded to clubs across the city since the program was approved by city council in February 2012.

The Garden City Community Centre received $21,500 for window upgrades at last week’s announcement.

"We want to give our busy volunteers the time to concentrate on providing quality programming," Katz said in a release.

"Having access to these renovation grants has made it much easier for them to tackle necessary upgrades, such as washrooms, lighting and flooring."  

More than $800,000 in funding is available for this year to fund repairs, retrofits and safety improvements. Applicants are eligible for 100% of a project’s cost to a maximum of $50,000 per project. The application deadline for the fall intake period is Nov. 1.
