“This funding will be of great benefit to our local municipalities at a challenging time for budgetary planning,” said MPP Piccini. “Getting shovels in the ground on new infrastructure projects will be a critical component of our path to long-term economic recovery and will improve the lives of the people we represent. I challenge our local councils to think outside the box and look forward to working with them on many important infrastructure priorities across the riding.”

Eligible projects under the COVID-19 Resilience stream will fall under four main categories:

 Community, recreation, health and education renovations (e.g. retrofits, repairs or upgrades to long-term care homes, publicly funded schools and co-located childcare centre facilities, recreation centres or shelters);

 Active transportation (e.g. parks, trails); and

 Disaster mitigation, adaptation, or remediation (e.g. flood mitigation).

The COVID-19 Resilience stream will deliver:

 Up to $700 million for education-related projects to be nominated and administered by the Ministry of Education;

 An allocation-based program that will deliver $250 million to municipalities to address critical local infrastructure needs, including $6.5 million that will be directed toward Indigenous and on-reserve education, through the Ministry of Infrastructure in collaboration with the Ministries of Education and Indigenous Affairs; and

 Up to $100 million for long-term care projects to be identified and administered by the Ministry of Long-Term Care.
