The non-profit Organization (NPO) strategy is expanding, which will allow for more organizations to receive funding and grow their services in their communities, Minister of Family Services Kerri Irvin-Ross announced on Aug. 28.
The announcement has two new components to the NPO strategy which includes “A commitment to provide multi-year, multi-departmental funding agreements to 10 more organizations that qualified after a public application process, and a plan to expand the strategy to include organizations that receive funding from just one provincial government department,” the press release stated.
The Thompson Boys and Girls Club, the Thompson YWCA, MacDonald Youth Services, and the Thompson Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation will all be receiving funds because of this announcement.
“Non-profit organizations perform valuable services for thousands of Manitobans in all walks of life including agricultural producers, small businesses, social services, child-care centres and the arts community,” Minister Irvin-Ross said in the Aug.28 press release. “By making it easier for them to access stable funding and cut through red tape, these organizations can focus on providing important services to meet the needs of helping groups and individuals in Manitoba.”
