Province announces funding for Alberta cities to support infrastructure needs, operating costs
28 Jul 2020
Alberta municipalities will receive $1.1 billion to support operating costs during the COVID-19 pandemic and build new infrastructure, the UCP government announced.
Speaking in Edmonton, Premier Jason Kenney said Alberta would match a $233-million contribution from the federal government to support municipal operating costs during the pandemic, as part of the Safe Restart Agreement.
The partnership, announced earlier in July, includes a federal investment of more than $19 billion to help provinces and territories safely restart their economies over the next six to eight months following mass shutdowns that began in March.
