City awards renovation grants to 23 community centres

Released: 9:27 a.m.

Winnipeg, MB – Twenty-three City-owned community centres will receive funding for renovations through the City of Winnipeg’s Community Centre Renovation Grant Program (CCRGP).

“As more and more Winnipeggers become vaccinated, there is renewed hope on the horizon that community centres will, once again, be fully utilized like they were before the pandemic began,” said Mayor Brian Bowman. “The Community Centre Renovation Grant program helps ensure these spaces can get the repairs and upgrades needed to maintain their importance to the residents in neighbourhoods across our city.”

“I’m pleased to see so many of our community centres receive the funding they need to update their facilities and benefit all the people who use them,” said Sherri Rollins, Chairperson of the Standing Policy Committee on Protection, Community Services and Parks. “Community centres play an integral role in building healthy communities and I’m looking forward to the day we are able to reopen.”

The community centres receiving grants are:

The program ensures that City-owned, board-run community centres can access much-needed assistance required to complete facility repairs, upgrades, retrofits, safety improvements, and renovation projects.

The program has two intake periods each year: a spring intake in March and a fall intake in October. Spring 2021 was the nineteenth application period for the program. Since the program’s inception in 2012, the City has invested $10,047,568.69 towards 212community centre applications for renovations across the city.
