REGINA – The Province of Saskatchewan signalled on Sept. 20 that communities and organizations in the province can submit funding applications for proposed water, wastewater and other projects as the last provincial intake of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP).
Water and wastewater projects can include treatment plants, sewage lagoons or similar facilities. Other projects include infrastructure that can adapt, resist or mitigate natural disasters and climate change, a Government of Saskatchewan release stated.
“We encourage applicants to provide their project submissions as early as they are able to so communities can put shovels in the ground as soon as possible. Our provincial government will continue to invest in infrastructure to create jobs, position communities for growth and continue to build a stronger Saskatchewan,” Saskatchewan Government Relations Minister Don McMorris said in a statement.
Eligible recipients who can apply include municipalities, First Nations and metis communities and related governing bodies, public-sector bodies, not-for-profit organizations and for-profit organizations provided they are working with Indigenous entities and/or municipalities.
Full eligibility requirements and the online application process are available at www.saskatchewan.ca/ICIP.
The new intake will remain open until noon on Tuesday, Nov. 29.
Under the ICIP, the Government of Saskatchewan has secured more than $900 million in federal funding to support all types of eligible infrastructure projects in the province, the release stated.
