MUNICIPALITY OF THE DISTRICT OF LUNENBURG, NOVA SCOTIA – The Municipality of the District of Lunenburg has awarded more than $116,000 in emergency funding to support not-for-profit organizations and fire departments impacted by COVID-19 cancellations.

Forty-four organizations received a total of $83,658 from the Community Facility Emergency Assistance Fund. Additionally, Council will transfer $32,500 from the Community Facility Emergency Assistance Fund to the Fire Departments Municipal Grant Fund. This allows Council to distribute $32,500 in emergency assistance funding to MODL fire departments. As a result of this decision, each Fire Department will receive a 50% increase in their annual grant.

“We’re dismayed to see the scope of revenue lost by our organizations,” says Mayor Carolyn Bolivar-Getson. “Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, many groups are experiencing significant financial hardship. We hope this emergency funding will help these organizations and our fire departments during this difficult time.”
