Safe Restart Agreement Funding Issued to Municipalities

Minister of Environment, Climate Change and Municipalities Derek Bennett announced on Monday that payments to all municipalities under the Safe Restart Agreement have been issued.

Municipalities will receive their payments in the coming days.

Newfoundland and Labrador received $27.4 million in funding from the federal agreement in response to COVID-19. This Federal Government portion of the Safe Restart Agreement is being matched on a 50/50 cost-share basis with Provincial Government expenditures retroactive to April 1.

The Safe Restart Agreement supports municipalities in protecting public health and safety, prepare for future waves of COVID-19, and further support the safe reopening of economies in Canada.
