Small municipalities in Quebec struggling to obtain funds for the construction and renovation of sports and recreation facilities will be able to pitch projects with a budget of up to $100,000 to the provincial government until Aug. 20, 2021.
Education Minister Isabelle Charest announced the launch of the Programme de soutien aux infrastructures sportives et récréatives de petite envergure (PSISRPE) on Tuesday in Saint-Denis-de-Brompton. The program carries $10 million in government funds.
“This is the first time we do this one and we’ll see how people respond to it, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to be popular,” said Charest, adding that only municipalities with fewer than 10,000 residents are eligible to submit a project proposal.
