The Town of Neepawa may soon have some additional funding to help beautify and improve a few local projects. Council has given the go ahead for municipal administration to pursue an application to the Co-op Community Space program.

Co-op recently launched the new funding project to help protect and invigorate the spaces that help communities thrive. The initiative is designed to support recreation, environmental conservation or urban agricultural projects across western Manitoba.

Neepawa mayor Adrian de Groot said if they received a portion of the money set aside by Co-op for these types of endeavours, it could assist with several local efforts, including work in the Flats 

Online applications will be accepted between Apr. 1 and May.15. Co-op will announce the successful community projects this fall.
