CPWA Welcomes Accelerated Funding to Municipalities
On Monday, June 1, Prime Minister Trudeau announced that funding delivered through the federal Gas Tax Fund will be accelerated this year to help communities as quickly as possible while respecting public health guidelines. This means that $2.2 billion in annual federal infrastructure funding for communities will be delivered in one payment in June. Early delivery of the full funding for 2020-21 will help communities quickly move forward with infrastructure projects and help restart local economies.
On Tuesday, June 2, CPWA welcomed this accelerated funding through a press release.
