Final funding approvals for 2017/18

Please see below the letter submitted to HRM for the process of monitoring LWFRA funding to community groups.

As outlined by HRM Department of Financial Policy and Planning, you will find attached to our letter a brief description of each grant request. In our meeting of February 20, 2018 the LWFRA approved $50,000 in funding to SWEPS Trailway, 1st Riverlake Scouts and LWF Minor Baseball. Our discussions with HRM Department of Financial Policy and Planning indicate that this is sufficient as a report for your purposes.
