Province Invests in Urban and Hometown Green Team Grants Bob Lagassé, MLA for Dawson Trail, is pleased to highlight a recent provincial announcement of over $10 million in Green Team grant programs to help young Manitobans find summer employment and gain work experience while supporting COVID-19 response and recovery efforts. “Our PC government recognizes the value of supporting community-based organizations and providing youth with critical work experience and income during these challenging times,” said MLA Lagassé. “These grants represent a strong investment in our youth by helping them get involved in our communities and parks while kick-starting their career prospects.” Selected recipients in the constituency of Dawson Trail include: • Town of Ste. Anne - $5,177 • RM of Taché - $14,303 • Richer Dawson Trail Museum - $4,633 • The Church at Pine Ridge $6,812 • Richer Community Club $11,986

• Division scolaire franco-manitobaine - $4,212 • Seine River School Division - $16,200 • RM of Ste. Anne - $4,768 Urban and Hometown Green Team grants allow communities to hire youth aged 15 to 29 to work on community projects between May 1 and Sept. 30. Non-profit organizations in Winnipeg and rural Manitoba are eligible to receive 100 per cent of wage costs and $250 per position for support costs, while municipal governments receive 50 per cent of wage costs and $125

per position for support costs, on a cost-shared basis. The province is maintaining its 2020 funding level for Green Teams, which had doubled from 2019 to stimulate youth job creation during the pandemic. Priorities for the 2021 summer season are focused on community-based organizations and municipal governments that can offer full-time employment opportunities for youth, and projects that support COVID-19 response and recovery efforts.

Accueil Kateri Centre is Accepting Winter Clothing Donations

With the Spring weather arriving it’s time to put away our winter clothing! Please consider giving your children’s gently used outerwear which you feel won’t fit next year to the Ste-Anne food bank, Accueil Kateri Centre. The food bank volunteers are already getting prepared for next winter, gathering items to give to children in need. It’s best if the items are functional, but they also accept ski pants which need repairs. They also need toques, mittens and socks. You can place your donations in the yellow bin behind the food bank at 132 Centrale or in one of the boxes in the RC Church, either in the Church entrance or in the office. Thanks in advance for your generosity.
