Grants extended to local communities

Lake Country, Kelowna, West Kelowna, and the Regional District of Central Okanagan will all receive  Strategic Community Investment Fund  grants from the provincial government.

These grants are generated from a combination of the Traffic Fine Revenue Sharing program and Small Community and Regional District Grants initiative.

SCIF grants allow communities to invest in their own priority projects.

The Traffic Fine Revenue Sharing program helps municipalities that directly pay for police enforcement costs. The grants come from ticket fines and court-imposed fines on violation tickets, and the amount of money a municipality receives is based on its contribution to total municipal policing costs.

The grant breakdown is as follows:

Lake Country: $276,430 (SCG), and $72,446 (TFRS)

Kelowna: $1,180,787 (TFRS)

West Kelowna: $70,346 (TFRS)

Regional District of Central Okanagan: $105,549 (SCG).
